IP address to use Internet

January 2, 2011 at 23:43:46
Specs: Windows XP
in my company has a dedicated line and cisco router. we are able to browse internet by giving manual ip address 192.168.0.1 ( Gateway ) . this from the cisco router.

for study purpose I got a new linksys router and pc then I installed windws server 2003 and setup manual ip for it 10.10.10.10 (ip addres ) 10.10.10.1 ( defaul G). the dns is (127.0.0.1) I disabled dhcp option in router.

Pls tell me, Is there any way to browse internet from this server ? if I need how i can do it ?

Try setting default gateway to 192.168.0.1 to begin with. Should be enough.

The WAN interface of the linksys router must be configured to be part of the 192.168.0.x network manually. Also configure the default gateway and the DNS server manually for the linksys router to use 192.168.0.1 (the cisco router).

After that, you have to use 10.10.10.1 as your DNS server in the 10.10.10.x network. This will be forwared to the linksys router and from there to the cisco router, which has access to the internet.

[EDIT]
You have to configure the 10.10.10.1 as you secondary name server in the LAN settings, or if your 2003 server is configured as a DNS server, you have to add 10.10.10.1 to the DNS forwarders list.

As you advised me,

I have changed the Linksys router as a bridge mode and changed the ip address 192.168.0.25 disbaled DHCP.

in the server pc the ip address 10.10.10.10 / 24 but the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 is it not 16 bits ? ... how it work ?.

After the changing the address...internet is not working..

If I change the ip address 192.168.0.26 / 24 and defualt gateway 192.168.0.1 dns 127.0.0.1...now internet is working..but the clients could not connect server pc..

The linksys routers WAN interface must be connected to the LAN, there the Cisco router is in.
The WAN interface of the linksys router needs an ip of the range 10.10.10.x.
But the LAN interface of the Linksys is e.g. 192.168.0.1 as your test network is in 192.168.0.x.
Therefore, you can enable DHCP at the linksys router for the clients, that resides to this 192.168.0.x network.
All requests from a client to the internet or to the server (10.10.10.10) are forwarded to the Cisco router.

"I have changed the Linksys router as a bridge mode "

This was never suggested as an option. You want to do nat not bridging or you need to put your server in the same subnet as the rest [why its called bridging]

Cisco [192.168.0.x lan]<>wan interface of linksys set to dhcp [Linksys router]<>lan interface set to 10.10.10.1

Make sense ?
