we have two different internet connection and both have different routers. and both of them have same gateway 192.168.0.1. "Network 1" having approx 50 user and it using a lease line(internet connection) in it and "Network 2" is having 8 user and it is having a broadband connection. Both networks have there individual routers . Now i want to all machine to be connected in lan but net connection should not be shared. as the broadband line is dedicated for those 8 user and it should not be used by others.

Buy USB lan cards. They are awfully cheap. Use it for the the weaker connection as they are usb and the throughput is weaker than ethernet ports

How to customize a case.
There are hundreds of cases to choose from when your building or upgrading your computer. There will most likely be one that catches your eye and it becomes your personal "must have", but there is something not quite right and you start looking to... See full content

If you want all pcs on the same network but only 8 of them to get that broadband ( I hope i understood now ) you can restrict access from the router

What you do is change the address of the broadband router to say 192.168.0.2. Then for the 8 machine that need to use it put in static IP addresses from the 192.168.0.x range...I would use ip say above 200. In these devices you put int 192.168.0.2 for the gateway address.
On the other router change the DHCP scope to exclude the address you assigned to these 8 machines.

So now everything works as you want but it does not prevent users from modifying their setup to use the other gateway. This now depends how much effort you want to go to prevent misuse. Could be as simple as a policy that says if we catch you you no longer work here. You would have to have some form of firewall rules that only permit certain IP but that only prevent the simple attack you would also have to prevent someone from stealing IP which requires you to hard code mac addresses into things to prevent

actually your solution will work but the problem is we don't have the access to network 1's router because it is configured and owned by our ISP provider.

It will still likely work because of luck. The first router will in general start giving out IP addresses in the low range and as long it does not manage to get high enough it will not duplicate your other ones. Most the time when you have a stable pool of devices the DHCP server always gives the machines the same addresses. You can always turn the power off on the first router once a month then it will always start at the bottom of the list.

Only other way is going to be to stick another router in front of the ISP router so you do control the network.
