connecting multiple networks togeth

Specs: Windows xp, intel
I have 3 seperate networks each with their own adsl internet connection via router.
Each router has both wireless and wired connections.
4 pc's per router (due to bandwidth requirements).
I want to enable each pc on each network to be able to access files on every other pc. ie network 1 pc 1 access files on network 2 pc3 etc.
Current solution is that every pc has a wireless card and hence can disconnect from their own network and wireless connect to another network....ideally require a better solution than this (yet still relatively simple!!)

Are you saying that you have 3 different DSL lines from the telco? I don't understand why that would be needed for only 12 PCs. What kind of bandwidth requirements are you talking about? One router can handle way more than that.

Anyway, the answer is routing tables in the routers. Each router is different.

The three have to be physically connected for route tables to work and the routers lan ports would have to support routing which most soho routers don't.

buy a real router that supports 3 adsl wan ports that also supports vlans on the lan side.

put a router between net1 and net2
put a router between net2 and net3

If you are a glutton for punishment extend this from 2 to 3 networks
