so - what's the problem ?
you should be able to get a DHCP address from each pool,
and then connect to the Internet via that specific WAP/Router.
What SSID is being used - the same ?
What channels - the same ?
I would think everything would be ok if you didn't try to roam around
and transfer from "segment" to "segment" -
Because the IP address of course would be a problem for the "other" segment
