Where did you try to change the network address - on the router? What kind of router? How did you try to change it, and was there a specific error?

What is your goal in doing this? Security, performance, ?

You are going to need a switch that supports vlans or a real router (not just your dsl modem) to do this - not sure you can do that with existing hardware.
