Not sure if I'm too late or if you already fixed your inquiry, however better late than never?!?!

With regards to your question, I think I understand what you may be asking here. Judging on the devices, they are located on two separate subnet blocks.


Now, depending on if you router is able to support secondary IP addresses then sure, it may work. If this is a home setup, you may want to see about putting them on 1 subnet. Once either of these are accomplished your devices should work fine.

Also, I just realized you put VLAN in the subject line, with that being said, what pieces of equipment are you using? Cisco Routers/Switches?

Please let me know if you have any questions on this, I'm pretty sure we can figure this out!

Thanks | Regards,
