win2k standard server with one nic and 4 clients. Server has DNS, WINS, DHCP. Problem, now the owner wants to have internet access for client machines. all clients are connected through switch.  Can I just kill the dhcp on the cable modem and set its IP address onto my subnet and use this as the default gateway for all machines. No rras or 2nd nic card. I can set the DNS forwarders per ISP servers. I do not need any remote access to the server. Just need internet for clients and server updates.

>Can I just kill the dhcp on the cable modem and set its IP address onto my subnet
Yes.

>I can set the DNS forwarders per ISP servers.
Yes.  Or, set it to the primary router.  Then whatever is set at the router should return it.  I don't use ISP DNS servers in some places.  Verizon uses a highjacking system where they send you to their own search page instead of just giving a "not found" result.  You can use 4.2.2.1, which is from the days of GTE (now Verizon), or OpenDNS servers, etc.

I would do what you already have suggested.

Kill the dhcp on the cable modem and set its IP address onto my subnet and use this as the default gateway for all machines. Setup DNS forwarders per ISP servers.
