How do I subnet a LAN with the same ip addr using 2 switches

Specs: Windows 7 64 bit
I have two computers that I want to separate from three other computers. They won't be able to see each other using a router connected to an ISP. I also want all the computers to have internet access. All the pcs are windows 7

You can do this in your HomeGroup settings under Leave a HomeGroup.

In order to have two completely separate subnets you would require equipment that is more intelligent than a SOHO router. Even with two SOHO routers, you would have one subnet that would be able to see both subnets. Only one would be fully isolated from the other.

So, if the above (homegroup) works (can't verify that myself as I do own several L2/L3 switches and a real enterprise level router so never needed to try that) I would go that route.

If however, you only need the one subnet separated from the other, then click on my name above in my response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “Add a second router to your LAN” You'll want to pay attention to "Version 2"

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Or best yet get a switch that supports vlans. Connect the pcs to the switch and the switch to the router. Configure the ports for the pcs as individual vlans with the port going to the router with all vlans. Much better than subnetting.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
