Default 2networks1printer

Hey guys. I have a kanundrum or question if you will. In my house, we have 2 networks connected to seperate internet connections. My dad / stepmom have a good printer connected on theirs. I was wondering if I could make/ use a computer to connect into that printer and connect to both networks, to allow them to print on that one printer. Also, if i could somehow access files from one network on another.. can it be done?

yup. Easiest way would be to connect the 2 routers, but give each router a separate gateway address. Or put 2 nics in your dad/stepmom's computer and hook 1 to each router. again, each router will have a separate gateway address. 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 etc...

VPN will allow you to do that.. which is what Hamachi can do.

Your basically setting up a virtual private network (VPN) across the internet and its secure.
