Multiple NICs in SBS 2003. Different gateways create error.
Posted on 2008-06-24
I have two different internet connections with two different ISPs, there are two routers with DHCP relay to the server configured.
I have a wireless adapter and a NIC on my server.
The server controls DHCP & DNS for the network
I want to configure 2 clients to use the 1st internet connection and I want to configure two clients to use the 2nd connection.
How do I do this?
I thought it a simple case of pointing the gateway of one NIC to the 1st router and the other NIC to the 2nd router. However, this doesnt work. I get an error stating the following when I close the TCP/IP properties:
"Warning - Multiple default gateways are intended to provide redundancy to a single network (such as an intranet or the Internet). They will not function properly when the gateways are on two separate, disjoint networks (such as one on your intranet and one on the internet). Do you want to save this configuration?"
My wireless adapter wont enable.
NIC is fine.
Any help greatly appreciated. This is doing my head in. :)
