I have an RV042 running the most recent firmware, and I'd like to

know if the following is possible:

I'd like to have two subnets, and

I'd like to have DHCP available on both, with some static DHCP assignments on both.

I'd like to have each subnet assigned to a port on the back of the router.


You plug a laptop into Port 1, and you get an address like

You plug a laptop into Port 2, and you get an address like

Hi Matt,

The RV0XX routers support only port based VLAN. The multiple subnet feature allows the router to understand different subnet and communicate with them. The DHCP server may be configured for only 1 subnet. This goal would require an external DHCP service.

If you're looking for this functionality as described, you may want to look in to the RV180 router.
