I want to build a home network with three subnets. I have a FiOS router (fiber optic). I'm willing to invest in a small router and small switch to accomplish this.
Please check my logic:
FiOS router interface "outside" goes to the ISP
FiOS router interface "inside" address is assigned 192.168.1.1 (and is default GW)
Home devices are assigned, via DHCP, 192.168.1.2 (and .3, and .4, etc.)
All NAT/PAT is taken care of by the FiOS router. ** see note 1 **
To build my subnets, I attach a home-use router:
e0/0 is assigned 192.168.1.2, pointing to FiOS router ** see note 2 **
e0/1 is assigned 10.10.10.1, going to subnet 10 on my switch
e0/2 is assigned 10.10.20.1, going to subnet 20 on my switch
e0/3 is assigned 10.10.30.1, going to subnet 30 on my switch
----Home-use router default route points to FiOS router
----Build access-list on home-use router to prevent subnets from communicating.
Assign my UNIX boxes 10.10.10.2 and .3; connect to subnet 10 on switch (GW=10.10.10.1)
Assign wife's PC to 10.10.20.2; plug into subnet 20 on switch (GW=10.10.20.1)
Assign son's Wii to 10.10.30.2; plug into subnet 30 on switch (GW=10.10.30.1)
Note 1: there is no need for additional Nat'ing on the home-use router, correct?
Note 2: since is it router-to-router, do they still require a xover cable and clocking?
Note 3: What consumer-grade router can handle this? Also, did I miss anything?
