Specs: Server 2003
Hello hope someone can help this newbie...
have setup our office network (1 server(MS Server 2003) and 4 clients) using a switch.

DHCP and DNS is enabled on the server.
static ip 192.168.0.55
subnetmask 255.255.255.0
default gateway192.168.0.1

preferred dns 192.168.0.1

All client communicate and share files with the server and vise versa.

My question

How do i go about setting up the internet so that all can access it server and clients?

We have speedstream 4200 modem with built in router which runs to the switch (port1), server(port2), clients(3-5).

I have disabled DHCP on the modem what is next please help...

Thanx in advance

Ben

Client computers should get the ip setting from your windows DHCP server, like ip address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server.

So ipconfig at a client computer should look like this:
ip address: 192.168.0.100
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS server: 192.168.0.1

You have to check, whether the clients get the correct settings.
Check this with:
ipconfig /all

at the client machine.
And the ip configuration should look like described in Response #1

Is this an Active Directory integrated domain or a workgroup?

The setup differs from one to another.

Sorry i just realised i left a crucial piece of info out...

I'm also NOT getting any internet on the server.

So modem/router to switch(port 1)
server NIC to switch(port2)
The rest clients

The settings i provided i created before trying to get the net going.

DHCP and DNS is enabled on the server.

static ip 192.168.0.55
subnetmask 255.255.255.0
default gateway192.168.0.1

preferred dns 192.168.0.1

Is there anything else that needs to be done on the server settings to allow internet on server

1. disable DHCP since handled on server.

2. Do i need to disable DNS on server?

3. So then we should be up and runnig?

First try an this at the server and post the result:
Click Start / Run and type CMD then click ok.
Type:
tracert google.com

Post the result

Then do the same with an ip address:
E.g.:
tracert 74.125.79.99

Post the result.

Yes do a trace route to help answer this question.

Do you have a static public IP or dynamic public IP? If Dynamic is the public DNS static? Last, have you setup the public DNS in your Forwarder setting in your DNS server?

If the
tracert 74.125.79.99
is succesful but a
tracrt Yahoo.com
is not then you have a DNS issue.
