DHCP/Dlink 614 router

I am going to use the DHCP function of win2k server to give out my ip
addresses on my lan. I wanted to know could this also work for my
wireless pc/laptop as well? Also if this works, how would I get the pc's to
log onto the internet once windows dhcp starts giving addresses??

Use DHCP option 003 to set the IP address of your DLINK router as the defaul gateway.

Providing you are not using a proxy server, this will work fine

Thank you, I am not using a proxy. Would this also work for my wireless clients as well?? and once it gives out ip addresses would my client and server be able to access the internet or is there something else involved like ICS??

Yup, this would work for all DHCP clients

You will need something to do the NATting - ie the translation of your internal network IP addresses to the external IP address of your router. According to the site (http://www.dlink.com/products/?model=DI-614%2b) your router does NAT and firewalling, which is also a very good idea. If you use the NAT function of your router, you will not need ICS as they will be doing the same thing.

The advice was right on!! after a couple of extra tweaks, My entire network was able to see the internet and the addresses were sent out so I could connect my printer and my wireless users as well thank you once again!!!!!
