Hi ChiefIT & Jimbecher:
I was out of town for a few days.  When I get back, I acce\idently click wrong choice for the comment, so I need to setup a new question.  The old question & comment can be get at

I will re-install all DNS, DC, DHCP and disable DHCP of my router today. I am apply Static IP now, it will be available in next few dys. I have few questions before I start re-install
(1). Do I need to wait until I have Static IP then re-install?
(2). How could I send workstation and server IPconfig /all  data to you as an attachment. so I do not need to re-type it.
(3) I am not quite understand Jimbercher's comment about -----The DNS address on the server should point to itself. When you set up the DNS on the server use forwarders to point to your ISP's DNS servers.
  Point to itself mean IP of the server which is the IP I can see at ipconfig.

1) You dont have to wait as long as you make ther correct TCP/IP configurations. IP, Gateway + DNS.

2) Usually people use print screen insert the pic into the question

3) It means that your server should have the same IP in both the IP field and the DNS field. If you want to you can configure you DNS (in MMC) to use forwarders but its not something you have to do..
