Hello Experts,

I have two subnets: 192.068.0.x and 192.168.4.x.

I would like to set up one Windows 7 computer to be able to access both subnets with one network card.

I thought I had read you can do that by adjusting the Subnet mask. Networking theory is not my strong point.

I have a computer with this address:

IP: 192.168.4.9
SM: 255.255.255.0
DG: 192.168.4.1
DNS: 192.168.4.1

Does anyone know how to adjust the SM of 255.255.255.0 in the TCP/IP configuration above in order to access both subnets (192.168.4.x and 192.168.0.x)?

Thanks!
