SBS 2003 does not ping router yet serves dhcp and dns to clients which can connect to internet!
Posted on 2009-04-14
set up is as follows: ADSL MODEM (bridged mode) -> Linksys Wifi router (does PPoE authentication and has static WAN IP, DHCP is OFF, Wifi A.P.) -> Lan Switch -> client computers and 2003SBS with 1 NIC.
the router's ip is 192.168.1.1
the server's nic ip is static 192.168.1.5 / subnet 255.255.255.0
server nic gateway: 192.168.1.1
server nic dns 192.168.1.5
DNS on the SBS box eventually points to att DNS servers ( 22.214.171.124 & 126.96.36.199)
DHCP is active on SBS and allocates leases on 192.168.1.15-200
This is a new install of SBS as of this afternoon, but i am at the same point i was yesterday...
If i ping from the SBS, i can't ping the router (time out)
firewall is disabled
i can ping machines that are connected to the network (not yet connected to the SBS domain)
i ran IEICW but nothing changes... recreated all DNS and DHCP setups still no no avail
any ideas as to what I am overlooking ? I have done this before and I don't know what I am doing wrong right now :-(
