Multiple home routers and Subnet help

Hi all,

Would like some advice / idiots guide if possible to setup the following:

I would like to have two separate networks running at home (192.168.0.XX and 192.168.10.XX) which are completely separate from each other, bar the ability for both to have access to my ADSL internet connection.
I would like one network to act as a ‘Dev’ network (where I might plug client machines into etc) and one as my main network.

So effectively I will have one network which is my main home network (running on 192.168.0.X) which all my home machines etc run on and have access to my main router or gateway to the internet (Gateway IP is:, and I will also have a seperate ‘Dev’ network (running on 192.168.10.X) which I can plug any PC / laptop etc that I am working on, into which won’t have network access to the other 192.168.0.X network for security purposes, but will have access to my ADSL gateway so they get internet access (like the other network).

Is this possible? And if so would someone please be able to give me a walkthrough on how to setup it up?

Current hardware is:

Main gateway router: Netgear DG834N on IP
Wifi access point: Netgear WNR3500 on IP
Spare (unused) router to work on the ‘Dev’ network: Draytek Vigor 2600 IP (to be confirmed)

Is it possible to do the above with my existing hardware? (I.e. not have to go out and purchase some expensive equipment)

Many many (many) thanks to any kind soul that is able to help.

Click on my name above in my response. In the page that opens up, look for my "howto" guide on adding a second router.
