DNS Issue on SBS 2000 Network

I recently changed the IP configuration from 192.168.1.# to 192.168.13.#.  I have the network setup as dynamic IP assignment through the SBS 2000 server and the DNS service is on the same server.  Now no client can find the dns server automatically.  It must be manually entered.  And if a mobile client joins the office network wirelessly they must also manually enter the DNS server in order to browse the internet.

This make it a pain in the #@!&!  Anyway I can go back to each client automatically finding the DNS server?

Did you check your dhcp scope?

Have the computer done and ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew?

Check the leases see if they have not expired yet.

do ipconfig /all on server and on a computer then post

Open DHCP on server.  

Expand domain
Expand scope
Click Scope Options
Edit or Add option 006 DNS Servers
Enter your 2000 DNS server IP address

Either reboot clients or run
ipconfig /renew

Open in new window

on each from a command prompt
