Ok guys heres a quick question.  I have  a small network setup for a classroom in a school.  take a look at the diagram I made for you at www.dragon-technical.com/setup.jpg

The Router is a little Dlink DI-604  Ive set a static ip address for the LAN side of it to be 192.168.0.5  I have a DHCP server set up as a DOMAIN controller with an IP Address of 192.168.0.1  Everything works great for all the clients except one thing.  The default gateway.  

The DHCP server obviously has the assigned ip address of 192.168.0.1  subnet of 255.255.255.0 and i specified the default gateway on the server as 192.168.0.5.  Success I can get out to the internet.  

But my problem is for all the clients logging in using the DHCP server they get all ip addresses fine, DNS's are fine, but the default gateway is blank.  the clients dont know what the ip address is for the gateway router.  

So really my question is, how do I set up on the 2000 server to tell all the clients who request an ip address what the default gateway is they should use.

you know I ran across that and I thought the same thing before but I figured id ask first then play.  its good to know I was on the right track.  Is that all I need to do is check that and supply the address?
