By arielj ·
we currently use windows 2000 server in our lan with xp as our o.s. of workstation. we use winproxy as our internet sharing. we purchaseda broadband router to replace the winproxy to share the internet but the problem is the broadband router is try to change the dns of our client workstation to the dns of the router. i have my own dns server locally (192.168.100.1)same with the ip address of our 2000 server. how can i share the internet without affecting our local lan...thanks

disable DHCP in the router, and configure your server as the DHCP and DNS server...either that or set static IP's on all the workstations with the DNS pointed at the server...

how do you have your LAN addressing setup? If you use static addressing on your LAN than Josh is right. you need to disable DHCP on the broadband router [most consumer level routers have DHCP enabled].

If you do use static addressing on the LAN, you need to add your ISP to the list of DNS servers on workstations [add meaning you have your W2K server listed and your ISP listed]. Need to make sure fowarders are enabled in your DNS server. Also the gateway is now the broadband router.

IF you use DHCP on the LAN, you need to add router options and update the DNS option to include your ISP DNS servers and again make sure fowarders are enabled in DNS.

The above link to the MS KB article on FAQ for DNS configuration. Will answer your question of how to ensure forwarders are enabled in DNS.
