DHCP Configuration

I am in the process of setting up a DHCP server on a Win2k3 server, and I have a question about the scope options.  I currently have my DCHP scope options set to:
Router: 10.1.1.1
DNS: 10.1.1.5
WINS: 10.1.1.5

10.1.1.1 is the gateway between the DSL connection and the LAN switch.  10.1.1.5 is the Win2k3 server.  With this configuration, LAN clients are able to access the Internet and other LAN clients.  My question is, should the Router setting actually be the IP address of the server?  I tried doing that, and that killed the Internet functionality of the client computers (even though I have a DNS Forwarder set to 10.1.1.1).  Is this the best way to configure DHCP?  Thanks!

No - the server is not doing routing - Gateway is another term for router - keep it as the IP of your gateway.

In addition, just for the record:
Where do you have your ISP's DNS servers? They should not be on any NIC TCP/IP properties, but rather only as forwarders in the DNS management console configuration.

Thanks for the help!  I had to split the points evenly, as you both responded within one minute of each other, and provided the same extact conclusion.

Everything worked perfectly!
