HOW DO I CONNECT MY WINDOWS 2000 SERVER TO THE INTERNET

By itchr_99 ·
I build a new windows 2000 server, install the DHCP on the server range 10.80.130.1 to 10.80.130.254 and a mask of 255.255.254.0
When I connect the server directly to the internet router (straight through cable) I connect to the internet.
If I connect to the switch, which is also connected to the internet router, I do not get an internet connection.
any help???

The most obvious questions would be....

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to HOW DO I CONNECT MY WINDO ...

Have you verified the port on the switch you're plugging into is working?

Have you double checked the cable and know for sure it's a patch cable? Some routers can accept a cross-over cable instead of a patch cable, but some switches can not.

Is the router set so that it only hands out a specific IP to the device which is plugged into a specific port? It could be that the router doesn't see the machine plugged in through the switch to another port.

When you changed the cable from the router to the switch, did you reboot the server and/or the router?
