Hi. I have successfully configured my DHCP server because I can ping it from the clients PC and my clients PC automatically grabs IP from my DHCP. Now I need help to figure out how my clients can have access to internet. Here is my hardware setup:
1. I connect clients PC and one DHCP server in one unmanaged switch
2. I have my Bell DSL Modem but not connected yet to one of these machines. I do not know how I can configure it yet to work with my machines.

The IP I assigned started at to

How do I connect the DSL and configure so that it may give everyone access to internet?

Please help. Thank you.

You can't do it with a modem and switch. You need a router.

You could use ICS [internet connection sharing - google it for the how tos] if your server has two nics. One nic goes to the modem and one goes to the switch and with ics you can share the internet thru the server
