I am currently using a cable modem that connects to a LinkSys router which I connect to with two XP SP2 laptops that are not currently part of a domain. I just received a dual nic server that I will install WIN2K3 server on. I would like to setup a domain at home using the server as both a DC and DNS server and to join my 2 XP machines. I would like to have my server connected directly through the cable modem (can I utilize NIC teaming?) but connect the laptops using the wireless. What is the easiest way to accomplish this? Do I have to have a static IP? Thanks in advance.
