    Seperate my lab network to normal network

    Hello,
    I am really stuck on configuring our network to be split, what I was trying to achieve was to have my network lab setup without interfering with the normal network I have setup, however I want to be able to use the same gateway for the internet. I will be playing with services such as DNS and DHCP on my server, and I don't want this to have a impact on my network. Is their any suggestions, and please can you brake it down as I am new to networking.
    Thanks Guys,
    Superaz300

    if you dont vant to use a Vlan you could use a smoothwall Express Box and put the lab hardware behind that thus giving you internet and the ability to talk to the lab via RDC.

    I do it a similar way to @SHimmer45 but instead of smoothwall express, I use a pfSense VM to handle routing for my test network.

    i find smoothwall's interface more user friendly if you not familiar with PFsense

    Pfsense here too... infact I use pfsense everywhere I can, for various different things and this is one of the segmenting and separating networks.
