Integrate DSL with existing NT Network?

By JCOBUZZI ·
What is the propper way to integrate a DSL connection into an existing NT network with existing TCP/IP addresses, so that both the existing network and DSL connection can be accessed by multiple users on the network?

A NT server connected to the DSL will have two NICS(internal external). Installing RRAS will allow you to configure the server as a router for internal machines using the NT server as a default gateway. You will have to configure some static routes.
If the internal PC's do not have valid internet IP's you will need a proxy server or network address translation.

For starters you will need 2 NIC cards for your server. One connected to the DSL and configured as your ISP suggests. I suggest you only bind TCP/IP to that NIC. The other connected to your internal network with a dummy IP, 10.0.0.???, and Subnet, 255.255.255.0. Then use MS Proxy Server and point your web clients through the server's dummy address as the proxy.

I have implemented DSL and faced that same problem. I implemented DSL on my NT Network. I would suggest using NAT (network address translation) on the DSL router. You can use your exsisting IP address scheme. My ISP suggested using 10.1.1.?, butthe addresses of the existing network were different. I simply reconfigured the router to use an internal address that was in my IP address scheme. I then used the internal IP address as the default gateway for the client computers.

I've tried the same in my office. I only added a router to the current LAN of 20 PCs (which is connected via a 24 port hub).
I got the the Alcatel Speed Touch Pro and terminated all my ISP info into it (IP,DNS,Gateway). Next, I connected the routerto the hub and lastly made sure that all client systems' gateway are of the router's. IP is set to be server assigned (still logging on to the NT server) but with ip being acquired from the router. That's all. All systems are still logging into the same network but now able to use the DSL bandwidth for surfing.
