What you need is a router and probably a dual WAN port router. A switch alone will not work as a switch is just for connecting computers together in a LAN. They are no good for connecting a LAN to a WAN. For that you need a router.

This is a small internet and gameing cafe. LAN A is fo browsing and LAN B is for online game.

your suggesting to load balance? That is not my intention. sorry for poor english. I will rephrase it. I have 2 network, each LAN has its own internet connection. LAN A is sing wireless wifi connection. and LAN B is an ADSL connected to a pc server( billing server)

wireless----> switch----> LAN A


ADSL---->pc server( billing server)------> switch----> LAN B

How can i connect LAN A to pc server on LAN B

In that case a switch will do it. The two LAN should communicate with each other providing they are both on the same sub net.

I would think you would need to run the cafe internet access THROUGH the billing server for it to control and montor the internet access.
