Windows 2003 Small Business Server and Toshiba Wireless

Hi,

Server:
I have a DELL machine which is running Windows 2003 SBS. It has a network card which is connected to a netgear DM632 Router/Firewall/ADSL Modem.
Connecting to the internet from this server is perfect. On this server there is also a wireless PCI Card which is properly configured.

Client:
I have a Toshiba A70 laptop. It has wireless too and it can see and connect to the server without any hiccups. It is currently running Win XP (Have tried both Home and Prof Versions).
I use Outlook to connect to Exchange on the SBS server using wireless and have had no issues with it.

Problem:
Both are connected and can talk to each other and swap files without problems.
But I can not browse the internet from the laptop.

Tried Solutions:
I have tried Static IP's, Auto IP's, SQUID proxy server and ISA firewall but to no use.
I have reinstalled the OS both the server and the laptop numerous times and I can assure that none of the above softwares had left conflicting files or settings on my machine.

Can someone help me please?

Kind Regards,
Abhi

If you don't enable any sort of Internet sharing method on SBS, there is no way for you the surf the Internet via SBS. I would either connect a wireless AP to your netgear router to provide wireless service or use a cable to connect your laptop to the netgear box (provided it has builtin switch so you can plug both SBS and laptop in).

Either way, you will be able to surf the Internet while still accessing the server.

I do not want to plug in my laptop because I do not want to sit in the corner of the room to access the internet. I would like to be able to use the wireless so that I can go around a house without any cables dangling the laptop because I want to access the internet.

As an update, I installed ISA Server 2000 and relavent service packs again. I configured the proxy server and now when I try to browse the internet I get this error message. Can some one tell me how to fix this issue.

Browsing internet from the laptop gives me this error:
HTTP 407 Proxy Authentication Required - The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy service is denied. (12209)
Internet Security and Acceleration Server

Browsing the Local website from the laptop gives me this error:
403 Forbidden - The server denies the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator. (12202)
Internet Security and Acceleration Server

I can browse the website from outside with out any issues. The issue seems only from the laptop.

Kind Regards,
Abhi

I resolved it myself by allowing all traffic on all ports on the ISA Server.
I know that it is not a good idea but had no other options.
Thanks!!!
