Hi,

I have a small network, and I have an SBS 2003 R2, with several clients.

the internet often times out and runs VERY slow via my clients.

This is my server ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

   Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : wicked-server
   Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . : WickedWebsites.local
   Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown

   WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes
   DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : WickedWebsites.local

Ethernet adapter Server Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.2
   Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.2

and this is the ipconfig /all for the XP Client

Windows IP Configuration

        Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : FUJITSU-LAPTOP
        Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . :

        DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : WickedWebsites.local

apter
        Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-16-44-6C-7B-FD
        Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
        Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.11
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.1
        DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.2
        DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.2
        Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 192.168.16.2
        Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : 10 October 2008 15:08:39
        Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : 18 October 2008 15:08:39

The server is 192.168.16.2 - it is the DNS And DHCP server, the router is 192.168.16.1 and isnt anything except the gateway for internet.

Any ideas how I can get the internet working again?

Thanks

Are you talking about users accessing the internet from your network, or users accessing sites on your server FROM the internet? Or something else?

Are you using ISA on your server?

Hi,

Sorry yes its users accessing the internet from my network, if they connect directly to the router (bypassing the server) its quick, but when they connect via the server its seriously slow.

Also, I dont think im using ISA, I dont remember selecting to install it...

Wicked,

So your clients on your network can access Yahoo.com quite speedily, but anything that is hosted on your SBS server (Exchange, Intranet, etc.) is not fast?

So it isn't DNS.

Has it ever been fast?

this is a new server, SBS2003 was re-installed yesterday, exactly the same as it was before, this is the 4th install I've done of server software (not the same server) but this is the first problem I've had browsing the net... when i run ICW I enter the DNS as the DNS provided by my ISP.... I tried entering it as the gateway IP but it wont use it....

is that right?
