They are on the same cable or wire. So, you only have one network.  For 
example, on this computer, I have a 192.168.x.x network and a 
207.41.x.x network. The 207. network is hooked up to my DSL modem 
switch and the 192. network is connected to a different switch. All of 
my local computers are hooked up to this network. They are physically 
different networks. 

You have two logically different IP addresses but they are on the same 
network.
