DNS Issue on SBS 2000 Network

Last Modified: 2014-08-04
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?
