You can't have two networks on the same class C subnet. There is no reason for it anyway. Only one router should be providing addresses.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Actually you can have two networks on the same subnet.
It's just a bit of work is all.

I am going to assume these networks also have their own gateways [routers to the internet]
Routers can not be on the same ip. So router 1 has to be at 192.168.1.1 and router 2 has to be at 192.168.1.2 for example.

You have two methods:

#1 do static ip assignments to all pcs.
Network 1 has x.x.x.10-175
Network 2 has x.x.x.176-254
or any split you want to use.
You assign gateway 1 to network1
You assign gateway 2 to network 2

#2 is the same except you do ip reservations in each router which is where you associate the ip settings with the machines mac address so it gets the same ip settings everytime.

You have to do #1 or #2 or you will have network1 pcs getting network2 ips and visa versa

What would be the reason for doing that? It makes no sense.

Makes perfect sense.

Most common way people find themselves in this situation is they have two independent offices, both with full services, that they have decided to join together.

Happens all the time with mergers, business growth/expansion.
