Also this is a DHCP server as well.

Change Server IP

by rene In reply to

You need to change the server's IP address to 192.168.2.X (X = any number that is not being used by a computer or router currently. Do not make it 0 or 255 as these are reserved.) You do this by going to your network connections in the control panel of the server. Right-Click on the Local Area Connection and click Properties. Find the Internet Protocol and Highlight it. Click the Properties tab just below it . Here you can change the IP address of the server. You also need to make sure you change the gateway address to point to the router. You also need to add a DNS server address which you can add the servers IP address or your ISP's DNS server address

Secondary IP address on the server

by xlescalier In reply to Change Server IP

It might be easier to add (temporarily) a secondary IP address on the server, in the desired range. You can give up to 4 IP addresses. You can also add a supplemental DG if needed. This way you keep the original IP address without possibly causing service disruption.

This is the best advice of all

Get a good book on TCP/IP. Do not attempt to configure anything else until you get as far as being able to subnet in your head.
