I'm running Win2000 Advanced Server: I installed a DNS Server and assigned the server a static IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address. I then ran dcpromo to create the first domain controller of a new domain tree. My problem is that now I'm UNABLE to connect to the internet. I have a VoIP broadband router connected to a cable modem. I called my ISP provider and they told me that I had to enable DHCP. When I enabled DHCP I was able to access the internet. Did I destroy the new domain that I just created since I'm not longer using a static IP?
My goal is twofold:
1. I want to access remote computers running XP Pro and add them to my new domain.
2. I want them to be able to access different computers on the network remotely.
