I find it EXTREMELY difficult to believe that you have 255 computers networked and talking to each other and don't know how to do this. But anyways, the answer is to get yourself a router with at least 3 interfaces.

Good luck.

Use a higher subnet.


or have two subnets on your network


Having two servers functioning as gateways.....

or two subnets with one gateway (with two network cards) and a routing table :-)

i was going to ask more newbish question but i found a site with great details.

don't be afraid to ask :-)

yes, a gateway pc. And you can route to the net through this, if that's what you intend to do....
