If your Server 2003 is a domain controller with DHCP and DNS, disable DHCP on the router and the gateway on your DHCP scope

If your Server 2003 is a domain controller with DHCP and DNS, disable DHCP on the router and add the gateway/router IP on your DHCP scope.

Hi Seth2740,
I tried to use server 2003 active directory but needs to access internet through the router for all of my connected machines.
