Secure Networks

Hello Experts,

I have 2 Linksys routers. 192.168.1.1 network and 192.168.2.1 network, both with a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask. I also, have a DSL modem with 1 Public static IP address and the modem only has 1 LAN port.

I want both networks to have Internet access, BUT I don't want the computers on the 2 different networks to communicate with each other in ANY way, so its completely secure. I am looking for physical configuration and logical setup within router.

TIA

PS: I don't mind purchase other hardware if necessary, so long as it doesn't cost too much :)

You need a Router in front of them. and basically set one up as internal and one up as DMZ. on the router.
or set up VLan's on the router.

Is there a away to put one Linksys in front and the other behind it without the need for a third router?
You can, but the network on the "behind" router will have access to the network in "front".

So there would be a one way communication only?

There is no way of the "behind" router to ONLY have internet access and not be able to even see or communicate with the "front" router?
