I am currently working on a project that needs to install a router (or just a network device) that can offer 2 or more DHCP networks. We have been searching a network device for this but haven't gotten any good news yet. Does anyone know any model or device that can fulfill this requirement? Any suggestion is highly appreciated! Thanks.

Most routers today have 2 or more networks... but what you are trying to achieve here?

Hi Couriant,

To put 2 groups into 2 different subnets. Did you mean the SoHo routers? We are considering the more advanced SoHo or small-business ones instead of Cisco's enterprise ones.

Are you looking for Ethernet connections only?

Ethernet is a must, but Ethernet + wifi is a big plus!

There are a few options. One is to go with the Aruba Networks Instant AP. It allows multiple SSIDs along with the ability to define individual DHCP scopes per SSID. Another option is from SonicWall. The W version of the TZ appliances have a built in AP and allow multiple SSIDs each with their own DHCP scope.

I have a TZ215 on my home network and know that this works along with the more "enterprise" Dell PowerConnect W 620 (OEM from Aruba) which I also have multiple SSIDs and specific DHCP scopes.
