What you did _should_ work, provided that you also adapt any possible firewall
on the gateway box.

Another possibility is to setup an alias on the gateway box, using the netmask
of In effect your gateway would then have 2 ip addresses:

One in the 192.168.0.x network, the other one in the 192.168.1.x network. It
might make it easier for you to work, but the downside is, that all traffic
from client to client will need to pass your gateway, if they are in the
different subnets.
