2 network, 2 ISP, sharing files and printers Tags: Internet Service Providers Printers Networking Last response: May 8, 2012 5:04 AM in Networking Share crackedmaster May 7, 2012 9:12:00 AM I have a basic setup in our small office; - 2 wifi routers, each with their own hub and each connected to different ISP. - I would like all computers on both networks to be able to share files and share printers. Please help me... - How do I go about setting this up....I'm not that well versed on VPN, would it work by just connecting the 2 network?

What you want is either a NAS or Server with two nics so you can put the files on that, or a dual WAN router to flatten the two networks into one. m 0 l crackedmaster May 8, 2012 2:18:55 AM Bro the setup is design to our office requirements.

The first option is cheaper, and you could even build your own with an old PC. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
