Am not able to decypher your description, but the usual way to do it would
be:

Either
Put them all in the same mask space.
i.e. 192.168.1.x
Where x is any number from 2 to 254
Mask should = 255.255.255.0 (which essentially means the first three groups
of numbers are the same, just look at the last group (octet))
e.g.
Router 192.168.1.1 (Routers usually take this address)
PC1 192.168.1.10
PC2 192.168.1.20
PC3 192.168.1.30
PC4 192.168.1.40

or

If the Router has DHCP, turn it on and let it issue TCP/IP address's to the
PC's as required.
This automatically puts them in the same mask space.


Note
On top of this you have to be in the same 'Workgroup' and to allow any
firewalls to pass traffic on these address's.

Cheers
Paul.

It won't work. The idea of a router is stop traffic being seeing any of the
local network the otherside of it. If the routers have more than 1 Lan
port, only use the LAN ports on the two you are using for the networks (in
effect, use them as switches which are what you really need) You should
then have them all on the same subnet e.g. 192.168.23.x.

You will in effect have Modem connected to WAN port of 192.168.23.1

LAN ports of 192.168.23.1 connected to the LAN ports of the other two
routers (use uplink ports on one end unless the ports auto detect cable
type) . PC's/Laptops plugged into the LAN ports of the two routers - I'd
switch on DHCP for 192.168.23.1 and set all PC's and Laptops to get IP
address automatically.

Try putting all your PCs/ routers on address 192.168.2.xxx.
Router connected to the modem set as gateway.

Should work. I have a similar system spread over 2 buildings and have
no problems in sharing files even though the lan in each building is
connected to a different router for net access.

Are you worried about someone else's PCs/ routers on address 192?
