I am looking to setup a Windows 2003 domain in my home for testing.
I have a Windows 2003 server loaded.
My connection is Comcast that goes to a Linksys WRT320N that is currently handling DHCP and I also guess it is orwarded the DNS from the ISP. I have wired and wireless connections on the WRT320N I could not get my client machines to join the domain. I am sure it is an issue with the DNS and DHCP. Need assistance in finding a solution.

assign a Static Ip to your server.

make sure to list that IP as the primary DNS server in the LAN configuration of your router

Thank you for that answer. One question though from all I have read most people say to move the DHCP over to the DC is that a better scenario or just make the entry you provided to me. Do you have a preference.
