My network is on 192.168.16 subnet
my private virtual network is on 192.168.16 subnet
i dont want this traffic to talk to one another but i do wish to route web traffic via the router on ( on the physical network)

I hope this makes sense

do i need virtual routers?
2 ?

1st with 2 network connections 192.168.16(vmnet)  2nc connection 192.168.1(vmnet2)

2nd with 2 network connection 192.168.1(vmnet2) 2nd connection 192.168.16(physical network)

is this possible?

also how would i do this?

many thanks in advance
