  • server 2003 r2 with linksys router

    hello,
    Im currently trying to set up a linksys router model WRT310N with windows server 2003 r2. My modem is pluged into the router and then from the router to the switch from the switch to the server. I want the server to run the dns and possibly the DHCP as well.

        My network is configured slightly differently to yours - no modem, and I only use one NIC on the servers. However, I would run DHCP from the server, especially if you have Active Directory installed. You can assign any address you like to the router. So long as the relevant devices know that address, it really does not matter.

        My network:

        Network Access: Clients > Switch > Servers (192.168.0.2 + 192.168.0.5)

        Internet Access: Clients > Switch > Router (192.168.0.95)

        nternet Access: Servers > Switch > Router

        Client IP config:
        DNS, DHCP, WINS adresses = Servers
        Gateway address = router

The server is ip192.168.0.1 subnet 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.254 dns 192.168.0.254 and i get am internet cconnection. when i change the dns and gateway to 192.168.0.1 on both the server and client computers i get no internet connecton. I also have the dhcp turned off on the router.

            Does your 2003 server have a dns server installed with a forwarder pointing to the router?

              If you have a DN server setup on 192.168.0.1 and you intend to run DHCP as well - setup DHCP on the 192.168.0.1 server as well.

              If you intend to give your clients static IP addresses you do not need DHCP.

              The router is your (Internet) gateway.

              Therefore, when configuring your clients:

              DNS server = 192.168.0.1
              Gateway = 192.168.0.254

              If you setup DHCP on the router, you can cofigure the DHCP options to automatically configure each client with the DNS and Gateway options, so there no need to specify DNS servers on the clients.

              The DNS server will handle all DNS requests for your network. Anything not handled by the DNS server (i.e. Internet addresses) are passed onto the gateway.

                      Are you running Active Directory? Do you have a DNS Server setup?

                        yes, DNS and Active directory are both set up on the same server. 192.168.0.1

                          OK, then.

                          Setting up a DNS server on the DC provides name resolution for the network. Any addresses not found (Internet) are passed to the router.

                          I don't understand how your Internet connection can slow down until it does not work. Are the PC's joined to the domain? Are you able to ping the DC and the router?

                          Do you have any Internet connection software installed such as Wingate?

                            yes, AD is on the same server as the DNS. i just need to tell teh router smehow that there is a DNS server on teh network and the DNS server that the internet comes from teh router. im not sure how to do that.

                              Is the domain controller configured the same as the client? Does it also point to itself for DNS and 254 for the gateway?

                              Are all the PC's and the router registered in DNS?
