If this is a serious request maybe this Bar Sport section is not appropriate?
- IP Freely
Any helpful insight (layman terms and/or links) would be appreciated.
I'm older- IP Nightly...RPS. There is a "General Discussion" section
What use are you actually expecting your document to be useful for? Almost all of the current "hobbyist" stuff is "use the TCP/IP implementation built into your WizNet or ESP chip, and create application-level stuff like web pages and json" (which are text-like. A lot of the internet protocols (Mail, Web, file transfer) end up being human-readable "on the wire", which is ... nice.)
we were going to create a /26 to have the capability of 4 separate networks with in our domicile

You understand that that means you need a router (at least one, with 4 ports) to go between them, right? Probably in addition to the router you already have between your ISP and your home network and your wireless... I'm not sure if the common "consumer" routers support putting a different net on each ethernet port or equivalent. Internally they tend to have a single ethernet Mac connected to an ethernet switch "fabric" that they make into pseudo-interfaces (to handle WAN vs LAN), but they might "typically" be limited to two of those...
... Most domestic routers have only one routing table. The WiFi and Ethernet switch are bridged at layer2, as a single routing interface with a single IP address....If you want to mess around with this stuff, buy a Ubiquiti Edge Router X, about the most affordable 'proper' router on the market.
Thanks for the added info. I checked my WiFi/Ethernet switch; it appears to support multiple tables(pic attached).
As a simple test, I took a known good connection from the my cellular network to access my NVR and changed the IPs (Class A) type and the submasks (Class C).
Realizing this problem is not specifically arduino related and I have seemingly bitten off more than I can chew,

The single MAC address has nothing to do with routing.
After reading, I thought I a fairly good foundation- obviously not the case.
