I don't quite get what you're trying to do ...

do you want a computer that connects 4 networks to an external router box,
but you don't want any of the networks to talk to each other?

Is this a physical thing you're trying to do, or is this just testing a

The first you can do by joining 5 networks together in one box and then
just ipf'ing the interfaces so that they can't talk to each other ... that
is if I read you correctly.

If the networks that you are separating use the same physical wires as each
other then you have different issues over your security ...
