Windows 7: Is there a way to see another subnet?

Is there a way to see another subnet?

I'm away from home for a few months and Internet access is provied by a router in the 192.168.x.x range, so my pc has an address on this subnet. But, I have a device with an address in the 10.0.0.x range that I need occasional access to, and the only way I know how to do that is to keep changing my IP address around from one subnet to the other.

Is there an easier way to 'see' the 10.0.0.x device when my IP address is on the 192.168.x.x subnet?

You would need a router that could route traffic between the 2 subnets. If this is simply a SOHO style router, you won't have the functionality.

OK, thank you. I suspected something more than normal home kit would be needed.

@ezhik;

You can bind two IP addresses to your NIC if you can do without DHCP. Turn off DHCP and go to Advanced TCP/IP Setting in IPv4. In there you can put a 192.168.0.0/16 address and the gateway address (Subnet Mask). Then add another address 10.0.0.0/24 and no gateway address (Subnet Mask). This way you can be on both networks at the same time.

Aarrghhh... I'm 16 minutes too late...

Yeah, bind a second IP address (meaning you'd have to use manual IP address).
Or you can buy a "real" router to "simplify" things... I personally use Mikrotik RB450G routerboard, it's the cheapest closest thing to my old Cisco 2000 series router...

Ps. here's the site for Mikrotik hardware - buy a board, and a case, and you have your self a super flexible router...

Fantastic. Thank you, it works, and I'm really pleased to have got this going. Added some rep. Many thanks.

Thak you for the advice too. I'm away from home for a few months and having to use a set-up that is already in place, and not for me to tinker with too much, and not for me to begin replacing equipment, however nice and flexible it would be.

The work around works spot on, the two subnets are 'binded', and I don't need to keep messing around changing ip address's anymore.

Tips much appreciated.
