You can't "bridge" subnets. You route between subnets.

Choices are;
1. put a second nic in the Ricoh and connect it to the other subnet
2. put in a router between subnets. do understand this may open the networks to each other when they are meant to be closed from each other.

can that be a simple router like a linksys? Or do I need something sophisticated with an OS like a Cisco?

why do you have two subnets?

Linksys is cisco, which should be fine, but you should not need a cisco pix firewall unless you wish to restrict who can come thru the router.
