Windows 2000 server and Internet connectivity?

I just finished setting up Windows 2000 Server with DNS and AD.  

I am running 3 XP Pro desktops through a US Robotics Router.

I am able to connect to the server on all the machines as well as surf the net through the usrobotics router that is acting as the DHCP Server.

However when I have tried to surf from the server I am not able to.  I have tried different settings in the internet connection tab and nothing has worked.

My server Ip is 192.168.123.1

Subnet: 255.255.255.0

gateway: 192.168.123.254

DNS: 192.168.123.1

Help Thanks

John

what happens on the server if you do a

nslookup www.cisco.com {enter}

does it return the correct IP address?

when I do a nslookup for www.cisco.com I get the following

server.realmanagement.ca can't find www.cisco.com: non existent domain

is your router really on 192.168.123.254?  that doesn't make practical sense, but it should logically work.  a more common use of IPs is to have your server reside at .2 and have the gateway/router sitting at .1 ...

is your server really serving DNS?  you probably need to set up forward lookup zones on it if nslookup is failing.

When you set up your DNS did you turn on your forwarders?
Open your DNS control console --> right click the server name --> Properties--> Forwarders tab--> Check Enable Forwarders and add your ISP Supplied DNS servers

I did set up forwarding to the 2 dns servers supplied by my ISP but when I went to check like you asked the entire forwarder tab is greyed out and nothing is listed.. and I can't make changes?

if you manually enter the DNS of your ISP on the servers own DNS properties (instead of your router) does that make any difference (thats how my 2K server is set up at home:)

Open your DNS console--> Expand DNS Server--> Expand Forward Lookup Zone-->If you have a zone with a "."  Delete it

This is telling your DNS Server it is a root server

The "." root tells the the DNS query the it is the top tier or final authority and the record doesn't exist.
