Just set up w2k sp4 as dc with ad and dhcp, set up server ip (which is only computer that can get on internet) with ip 192.168.1.2, subnet of 255.255.255.0, default gateway 192.168.1.254 and pri dns 192.168.1.2. Set clients to pri dns 192.168.1.2 with ip auto. Router/dsl modem is Netopia. Workstations cannot get on internet, in ipconfig the default gateway and the dns server are both blank, their ip is from server so why aren't they getting the dns server and default gateway from server? No "." forward lookup zone. What am i missing?

>>>>>Router/dsl modem is Netopia

Is this device setup as a DHCP which could conflict with your servers DHCP? If so change that setting so it don't try to hand out IP addresses.

Also make sure on your servers DNS you have the DNS server IP adddress from your provider entered into DNS forwarders located on a tab under properties of your DNS server.

I hope this helps you.

The router dhcp is disabled. i have set this system up exactly at 2 other facilities and they do not have this problem. My main concern is when i ipconfig/all at any client station, they have NO default gateway address, how do i get this back? When i assign ip/gateway/dns manually, they can get on the internet, but this presents its own problems.

Caretel,

Thank you for the feed back. Have you checked your dhcp configuration to see if the content is correct. Look under scope options to see if all is well. This link may be of some use to you.

IS the DHCP client service starting on the XP boxes?

I hope this helps to get you a step closer in resolving your issue.
