You're assuming it's possible.  It's not.  Addresses in the range
192.168.x.x are explicitly not routed.  See RFC 1918
(http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/cgi-bin/rfc/rfc1918.html) for further

You're not very clear about your router, but I assume it does NAT for
you: to connect an RFC 1918 network to the Internet, you need to use
some form of Network Address Translation (NAT).  Theoretically, you'd
need to do the same at the junction between the 192.168.0.x and
192.168.1.x networks, though you might be able to fake things by
choosing 23 bit net masks.  If this doesn't mean anything to you,
don't ask.
