You can put the specific boxes on any other subnet to 'isolate' them, and have them use a router on that other subnet (LANside) that is connected (WANside) to your existing subnet.

For example:

Add a router into your subnet (connected to your existing subnet on its WAN side) and set it up to control a subnet on its LAN side.

Add those specific boxes to the subnet, and they will get 'out' to the internet via the new router first, and then via your existing gateway.

Does that help and make sense?

yes it does and I guess I should had added this. there is an beyound ancient router that I cant replace and will not allow for that kind of interaction. I was hoping to do with just ip outright - aka config ipv4 on box x with a (ex) and have go out.

No obvious need to replace the existing router is you go with the above option - just add another router in.

Your existing router won't know or care that the new device is a router rather than, say, a PC.

What type of router do you have? If it supports VLANs, then take advantage of that on the LAN side.
