2 NICs, cant connect to Broadband Router Web Interface, from internal network

Hello EE,

Ive got SBS 2003 setup on 2 NICs, I cant connect to the Web Interface  on my broadband routeron from the internal network.

Is this due to the fact that i have both inetrnal and external NICs on IPs 192.168.1.x, rather than say the external IP being 192.168.2.x ?

Please someone have a check over my NIC settings, to make sure?

ipconfig/all snippet

Many thanks
Joe

If you've got those NICs connected to two networks (for example, if one connects to the router and the other to your LAN), they need to be in two different IP ranges.  If the one connected to your router has the correct range for the router, it may be easier to change the address on the LAN-connected NIC.

If you've got them both connected to the same network, they should either be teamed, or one should be disabled, unless you have a specific reason for using them both.

the router has to be on the same subnet as your server. for example: if your router's address is 192.168.1.1 your server has to be 192.168.1.x.

how are the IP addresses assigned?  

can you access the web interface from the actual pc?

can you ping the router?
what is the address of the router?
if you have the 2 ethernets connected on the same lan then they should bethe same  192.168.X
one hasn't got the gateway defined

Make sure your router and NIC are on the same subnet.  Also, have you already setup your web interface on the router?  What kind of router do you have?

Thanks for all the responses.

Just to clarify, I ahve 1 NIC going to my internal LAN router and 1 NIC going to my external Broadband router (the onw i cant get the web interface to work)

Broadband router set to 192.168.1.200 / 255.255.255.0 so subnet correct.

I think i need to change the the IP range of one of the NICs as both on 192.168.1.x, as DrDave242 suggested. I feel it would be easier to change the broadband router IP and external NIC IP range, where would i do this?

Thanks again

by using the web interface :-)

set the nic on the broadband router side to automatic and it should be the right address from the router - then you will be able to use the web interface

Thats fine i can get the web interface via hassle of pluging in/out cables (eventually).

What about changing IP on SBS of the external NIC, to ensure SBS knows where to send internet request etc. Is it done via "Routing and remote Access" then "IP routing" "General" then changing the appropiate IP on the external NIC?

Or is there more places to do it?

Thanks

You'll first have to hook up a different machine to that router (or temporarily disable the LAN-connected NIC on your server) so that you can log into its Web interface.  How you go about it from that point depends on the router, as they've all got different interfaces.  There should be a "LAN Configuration" section (or something similar) in there, though, and that's where you'll need to change it.  You will lose connectivity to the router when it changes, because you'll no longer be in the same subnet with it, so you'll have to change the IP address and default gateway on the WAN side of your server to match the router's range.  There's a "Change IP Address" wizard in SBS, but in a two-NIC arrangement, I think it's only for changing the LAN side, so you can just change that address the old-fashioned way.  Once that's done, you should have connectivity to the router from the server again.  At this point, you'll definitely want to run the "Configure E-mail and Internet Connection" wizard on the server and make sure all settings are correct.

All done, changed External NIC IP range and Broadband Router IP. I can actually get on to the routers web interface now from the internal network, so many thanks!
