+ 0 Votes Hi animatech 7 years ago On the client machine\s go to TCP\IP properties , goto advance, goto DNS check "Append these DNS suffixes (In order)" put in your DNS full name such as "microsoft.com" (and any other DNS that you have if you have more configured for example I have one on my router and one on my DC) at the top window put in the DC and the router address as the DNS server to use and you should be OK.As for the 2nd Q you will need to decide which DHCP you will want to use as you cannot have 2 running on the same network (Unless they are in different subnets) but I don't see any problem runinng DHCP from you DC. + 0 Votes Default gatweay on Client PC's NOW LEFT TR 7 years ago What is it?This would be the next hop.
