Server 2008 have no Internet access

Hi I have a windows server 2008 which is acting as the only DNS and DC in my network. But the server is not connected to the internet. So that im using the public DNS servers in all the client machines.

Servers TCP/IP:
IP:192.168.x.2
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.x.1(The IP address of the modem provided by ISP)
Primary DNS:192.168.x.2(I just pointed to itself)

Client Machines Tcp/IP:

IP:192.168.x.x
subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.x. 1(The IP address of the modem provided by ISP)
Primary DNS: Public DNS Provided by ISP

If i point the client machines to my local DNS the client machines are not connected with the internet.
Im just a beginner. Can any one help me out of this.

Note:

1. My server connects to internet if i connects through proxy.



Regards,
Prabu.

    Thanks for writing. Tried providing public DNS and router ip as primary DNS...still my server 2008 is not connected with the internet.
  3. can you open CMD and PING www.yahoo.com?
  4. Getting timed out when I ping public servers.
  5. for testing purposes set the network card to auto so that all the IP settings come from the router and see if you have internet access
