If they are on the same subnet then it would have to look like this:

internet or firewall
__| | ____
subnet 182.168.1 | | subnet 192.168.1

Under this layout the router would not know which subnet to route to.
It must there for either be different subnets or both machines are
connected to the same interface and therefor can talk to each other
without having to access the router.
