Windows 7: Can two routers connect to one router wirelessly and have their own ip

Can two routers connect to one router wirelessly and have their own ip

I have two units for rent. Thus, I need a total of three separate networks so we don't accidentally share files. The two units, a duplex, and the main residence is about 20 meters away. I'm thinking of putting a router in each unit and have them connected wirelessly to the router in the main residence. I think they can connect to the main router in bridge mode but can them have their own network (I mean one has an ip address of something like 100.50.10.x, the other 120.60.20.x)? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have DSL (256 K). Router is TP-Link. I can buy different brand of routers if they'll work. My ISP is Yatanarpon (I am in Myanmar).

Yes; i believe this can be done. You just have to into the configuration page of each router via ethernet or wireless and configure the setup for this. There should be a few different pages to configure this.

Thanks for the reply. With the configurations shown on the page, the two networks can share files and printers. That is what I want to avoid. I don't want file or printer sharing.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes. It can be done and I have done it before. However, last time when I did it, I wanted file and printer sharing. This time, I don't want to share files or printers. As far as I know, with bridge mode, routers have to be on the same network. Thus, file and printer sharing are possible (which I don't want.)
