You can only have multiple external networks if you have multiple NICs in
the host machine. You can create a external virtual switch for each NIC in
the host if you wish.
The other alternative would be to create multiple private networks (ie
virtual networks not linked to the physical network or the host) and link
these to the physical network through a multihomed vm running a software
firewall program. eg
host firewall vm
