Add Router to Network?

I need to add my router to a network with server 2000.
Other than making the gateway entry in DHCP is there anything else to add?

I cant get it to work?

I know its configured right because it use to work before I formatted my server.

Help me please.

Provide more information:
What exactly is and isn't working?
What type of router is it?
Describe your network setup, noting where your router is connected & where your server is connected.
How is your router connected to the network?
Was everything working with the server and you reloaded  the server OS or is this a new server?

Also verify that you can reach the router from the server (i.e. ping the router's IP address from the server). If that doesn't work, check the cabling and also the subnet mask on both devices (to make sure they match). Seeing as its' the gateway, I assume that you are connecting through it to the INternet (just guessing...I might be wrong in that assumption)? If so, you will likely also have to configure NAT (or PAT) on the router- translating your internal IP addresses into external addresses (or many internal to one external in the case of PAT).

The router works find as I am using it on this singel computer.
However when I disable DHCP on it and put it to the network I get no internet as I am getting on this computer.

The router and network use to work fine before I formated the server and put back on server 2000.
The server is running DHCP and the router has the same value as before and the server has the entry for the router in DHCP


Any solutions or something I can try will help a million.

What is your router's internal IP address (something like 192.168.0.1)?  What is the IP/subnet mask and default gateway info that your server is vending through DHCP?  Your router's internal IP may not be on the same IP space as what your DHCP server is handing out to the network clients.

They are the same.

Server = 182.22.6.2
Router = 182.22.6.200

What subnet mask is DHCP handing out?  What default gateway is DHCP handing out?

Also, when you shut off DHCP on your router, make sure you're turning off the router's DHCP server, not the router's DHCP client.

255.255.255.0 = DHCP
182.22.6.200 = Default Gateway

Checked - only DHCP on the router is off.

This is amazing because it worked fine before I formated the server, wierd!

Check your DNS settings, make sure that DHCP is vending valid DNS server addresses.  You can use the addresses that are set up on your router or use your router's internal IP.

I think the problem lies with the DNS's on the server that you reformated have you setup the DHCP server to give out DNS server addresses as well?
if these address's are missing you will not be able to get out to the internet.

if you are unsure what dns entries are needed renenable the dhcp on the router and then connect a pc to it make sure you can get out to the internet. No go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /all
this wills show you the dns servers that the router is using. now turn off the dhcp on the router and go back to the dhcp server and go into the scope options then then configure options you want to then use the 003 router option and enter the address of the router you also want to use the 006 option and enter the dns server addresses's.
Let me know how it turns out

If your Server 2000 is acting as DHCP server, You could not get default gateway as 182.22.6.200 on workstation, unless static IP.
More likely your workstation is getting 182.22.6.2 as default gateway.

So They are not able to access internet.

Is your server setup for IAS
