Apologies in advance if this question is a bit simplistic. I'm normally a software dev, however I'm the only 'IT guy' in my company so I have to deal with all sorts. Bear with me..
My company is planning on setting up equipment overseas on the premises of a third party. When we get there we will be piggy-backing onto the network of the third-party. We need control of the network which our devices are connected to in order to ensure things like static IP address allocation etc. The hard part is we don't really know anything about the network we'll be connecting to. Ideally we have everything set up so we can plug-and-play on arrival.
I think this means I need to create a subnet like I've shown in the picture, with our router acting as a DHCP server for the subnet. However, that's about as far as I got.
- Is this the correct way to achieve such an outcome?
- What sort of device do I need to achieve this? Router? Switch?
- How can I best set up the router/switch so that we can get as close to plug & play on arrival and avoid conflicts with the existing network?
