For our project, we set up a master and slave network. We would like to simultaneously have two datalinks (2.4 GHz and 900 MHz) set up, and have specific topics publishing to them. We would like to be able to produce this workflow with one master and one slave. We would like to avoid using two master computers or virtual box, if possible. How are we able to set up this workflow?

Can you clarify what you mean with 'master'? ROS has a 'master' component, but I don't think that is what you are referring to.

I doubt it is possible to do what you want with ROS specific tools, but I can imagine some solution with a multihomed system, nodes binding to specific IP addresses and using firewalls and custom routes to get traffic to flow over specific interfaces.
