Greetings,

My SBS2003 has lost it's ability to communicate with our network. I have tried to run the Internet Connection Wizard, and it is asking for the router IP address. Is there any way I can find that. I am new at this stuff and I don't have it written down. (I just inherited this network) Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This would normally be set as the default gateway check your clients/servers default gateway address they *MIGHT* have the correct one.

There is nothing listed under "Default Gateway" for the server or clients. Any other ideas.

So if you run IPCONFIG /ALL there is no default gateway listed?

On the server under Start > Administrative Tools > DHCP expand the DHCP scope and goto scope options, what is entered as the router address?

Well, I had to call in a network expert in. I (and he) was able to get the internet and e-mail back, but all the company drives were still not connecting. As it turns out, the NIC card had a setting on it to "allow file sharing" that needed to be checked. Crazy day. Thanks for all the input, guys. Cheers!
