I am setting up a vpn using Microsoft's Step by Step instructions. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd637783%28WS.10%29.aspx  I am a little confused as to how to configure the router. Is the RRAS on the vpn server acting as the router. The way I read the instructions the Modem(bridge Mode) to the 2008r2 server(192.168.0.1) to the switch (Router with dhcp disabled) the DNS server resides on 192.168.0.2  Are we putting to much of a load on the VPN Server (Average quality) and slow down the internet to the rest of the local machines. I have the dns server currently running in a normal configuration. I have made the mistake of trying to run both DNS and VPN on one server and I want to make this as painless of transition as possible to get this VPN up and running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VPN Server and VPN Router mean the same thing.   A VPN Router is a WAN Router that uses VPN Tunnels as a way to create the private WAN Link,

Do not run DNS and VPN on the same machine.  Assuming the DNS is there because it is also a DC,...DCs should always be single-homed machines except when they are SBS machines which is a special case.

If the Modem is a "modem" then it is already "bridged" because that is what a Modem is,..they are Layer1 & Layer2 devices.   If the device is a NAT Device (commonly, but incorrectly called a router) then running it in bridge mode means you are disabling all of the NAT and Layer3 and Layer4 functionality, thereby making is basically just a "switch".
