First of all check that your router is able to make VLAN. Also, if you have layer 2 equipment, I would definitely make use of VLAN's to also segregate each network.

  

OPTION 1:

Add more NICs to the host. Make sure the IP blocks on the NIC cards are different.

If you use 192.168.0.x/24 on the first 

                192.168.1.x/24 on the second

                192.168.2.x/24 on the third.

Next you will likely have to use static IP addresses to all NICs rather than DHCP on the host.

OPTION 2:

Assign multiple IP addresses to the same adapter on one computer. Microsoft O/S support this configuration as an advanced IP addressing option. you don’t need to have a physical adapter attached to each IP. As long as it is on the same subnet it can be used, but if your two networks are different subnets, not so much.
