I am not into networking, but could it be that you are dealing with two ranges that aren't routable?

If I were having this problem, I would potentially look into Network Address Translation (NAT)

(Built-in) Routing is not supported in Windows 7. Vista was the last desktop OS that could route IP packets.

Restrict ACtive NICs
Hey there I would like to know if there is a way to restrict the total number of NICs to one. I would like to make sure no machines are multi-homed (connected to an internet only wireless connection, whilst connected to a corporate LAN, for instance). Is there a way to do this? Thanks
