how to build multiple different ip subnets with one flat subnet

I have an ASUS soho router with a 192.168.1.x ip address and trying to find the easiest and fastest way to build other IP subnets. I would like to preserve the 10.1.1.x and do the following


the most difficult things is to make them talk to each other. I did some googling and found some software called GNS3 but having some trouble getting hosts on other subnets to talk to each other.

You would typically set up an IP address and netmask on the router for each of the subnets and configure routing within the router to let the different subnets communicate with each other.  If you'll provide more info on the router (model number would be helpful) then we can check if it is even possible with that router.
Which model router?  Some SOHO routers do not support having more than 2 subnets ("inside" and "outside") multiple subnets, so you may have to get another true L3 device.

actually I found the solution. I bought a Verizon router which has this capability built in.
