This is the situation.  There is a managed router on my network with a 2003 SBS server.  The server's dns is set up with dns forwarding so that the clients can access the internet.  The router is handing out the dhcp with the server's ip as the dns server.  We have a few users who do not authenticate on the domain, but need to be able to get on the internet.  At first the router also had the dns of the isp listed as a secondary dns server in the dhcp scope, but that was causing problems with the users that authenticate on the domain so that was removed and now the only dns server given out by the router is the server's ip.  Now the users that do not authenticat ont he domain cannot get internet access.  Is this configuration possible?  If so how can I accomplish it?
