Need to run two seperate networks shareing one internet connection.

   I am sharing an office space with another buisness, and we both have a server running windows server 2003. We only have one internet connection. We want to keep our servers absolutely seperate. What would be the best way to configure our hardware (routers/switches) so this will work?

Just use different subnets.  Or one network use 192.168.X.0 and the other use 192.168.Y.0 and set the gateway to the IP of your router, the gateway doesn't have to be on your subnet.

Different subnets is just a logical separation.
For physical separation you need a router between these networks.

Which kind of routers and switches do you have ?
What kind of internet connection?
any firewall?

Right now I have one Netgear wireless N router that everything is running through, I have access to a couple of switches and another router.
My internet connection right now is a sprint DSL line wth a static IP, but I will soon be switching to a local cable provider.

Will the cable replace current DSL for both company?
If not, you already have a separate router by having different courier.

I would place a firewall in front of the internet connection.
Then connect a router to this firewall and configure it to use VLANS or separate ip ranges for each company.
