Help with IP/DNS Settings for Dual Intel NIC Card in 2003 Win Server

By david786 ·

I'm slightly out of my league on this one and looking for some basic help

I have a Win 2003 server on a small LAN of 8 PCs.

I just installed a Dual Intel NIC card.

The server is attached to a switch. Plugged into the switch is a DLINK wireless rounter which acts as a DHCP server.

I have RESERVED TWO IP addresses in the DLINK DHCP reservation list for the Intel NIC card, and configured the IP setup on the NIC in the server as follows:

IP Address and the second one
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway

Now in the Preferred DNS section below the above, I tried to use
the DNS settings from my DSL modem


BUT I get an WARNING that says "Warning Multiple Default Gateways are intended to provide redundancy ....blah blah blay........disjointed internal networks blah blah........Do you want to save this configuration?"

Well....given this message I dont think I am doing this correctly. Can someone please guide me as to the correct DNS setup?

Thank you!
