I have a small business network setup with 1 server acting as the DC, DNS server, and DHCP server utilizing AD. I have 5 other computers that all have win xp pro on them. It takes over 2 minutes for the xp clients to login. I am almost positive that I have a DNS issue but can not figure out how to get everything working properly.
The present configuration = internet ------->Fractional T1 modem -------->Netgear Router w/8 port switch ----->then I have all the clients and the server connected to the netgear router/switch.
The router has a static IP and I do not have it set to be a dhcp server because the win 2003 SBS server is the dhcp server. When I do nslookup I it returns the name of the sever but the logins are still slow. I also have the gateway for the server and the clients set to the internal netgear router ip
(ex. 192.168.0.1) Do I need to have the clients gateway set to the win 2003 SBS server's ip address? Any help is greatly appreciated!
