    This is my first post here and I did look to see some solutions to this question on other posts but they are slightly different than my situation. I am "trying" to help a friend.
    This is the configuration as it stands now.
    One Unix server goes to a router with 3 Dell PC's running some version of XP. The main application is the Unix program. Windows is not used for this app. There is no connection to the internet. The IP is in the range 10.173.133.x for each of the PC's.

    A second network starts with a Verizon DSL Modem/Router that connects to 5 PC's running XP and 7 through routers and switches. All the PC's have Internet connectivity.

    The goal is to have the 10.173 network be able to have Internet connectivity without the need for file sharing.
    The question is how to do it. The 10.173 router is very old and I have no idea if I can find information about it.
    I can purchase a third router if required. I can also wire between the two routers with CAT5 cable.
    Thanks for any help.
