For such work a router is best.

Such a setup is going to be too hard on most folk and without some practice you can't usually pull it off.

Try VIRTUAL ROUTER and hope.

Check for the local host. Is it configured with a unique address
Try to release and reassign new ip
Upgrade is required if you router has faulty dhcp server.

Could you give more info?????

I fix the OP's issue a lot by installing a real router. I can use Virtual Router but found that most folk are put off by it's geekiness. Folk want this to be easy.
