help setting up adsl on a windoze 2003 sbs server

Hi there, im having a complete night mare setting up my server,

i have 5 workstations that connect to the sbs server via a linksys wireless router (wrt54g)
im trying to share the internet connection so that all these workstations can connect to the internet.
on my server. i can connect and surf the net,
on the server in server management there is a "connect to the internet" wizzard which i have followed through, however i still cant seem to connect the work stations to the internet,

can some one give me some advice

many thanks

Ben

Set the default gateway of the NICs in the workstations to the IP address of your router.

OK, then: set the default gateway of your server to the IP address of the router and set the default gateway of your clients to the IP address of the server.

Right-click "My Network Places" and select "Properties", right-click the LAN connection and select "Properties". Click on TCP/IP and click on "Properties". You should see entries for the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. Failing that, if you use DHCP, then add the Default Gateway in your Scope.

The Default Gateway is how your PC communicates "outside" of your network. It will still use DNS on your Server for internal communications.

My first question is ... Why on God's green planet Earth are you using WINS??

If you are using the DHCP from your Router, then I assume it will give your clients the IP address of your Router as the Default Gateway anyway.

On one of the clients, click on Start/Run type cmd and click OK.

In the DOS screen type ipconfig /all

Does it tell you the IP address of your DNS server, DHCP server and Default Gateway?Huh

Ah, now it all becomes clear. Your Router is just a Router, you don't have a built-in ADSL modem. That is separate.

WINS stands for Windows Internet Naming Service. It's Microsoft's attempt at DNS.

If the Default Gateway of your server is also the IP address of the Router and that works fine (in terms of Internet access), then I can see no obvious reason as to why the clients cannot also connect to the Internet.

If your clients are simply connected to your Router and the Router is not connected to anything else, then it is simply behaving as a Hub/Switch and not as a Router.

So, the Default Gateway of your Server is the IP address of the ADSL Modem. All you have to do is set the Default Gateway of your Clients to the IP address of the Server.
