DNS settings for Wireless NICs
Posted on 2006-05-10
Notebook computers used as workstations in a SBS domain must have the wireless NIC set with the IP address of the SBS server as thier primary DNS server in order to connect to wireless access points on the SBS LAN.
When traveling out of the office with the notebook computer the user needs to connect to wireless access points and acquire network settings via DHCP (including the primary DNS server).
Of course, the user could change the TCP/IP properties back and forth when in or out of the office, but it seems like there should be an easier/more graceful way to accomplish this.
