So I've got a home windows network, 2008 R2 server as DC, DHCP and DNS. Internet comes in from Virgin with a 86.x.x.x IP - all is good.
What I want to do though is virgin hit my linksys router with an IP of 192.168.0.99 and this share the connection on my domain. So topology would be ...
VM > Router > Server 2008 adapter 1
Server 2008 adapter 2 > Switch > Network clients
I've tried ICS but just can't get it working with the router in the equation. I'd want the router to handle wireless still but not DHCP so giving statics to wireless devices is fine I just want them to communicate with devices on my network, wired or wireless.
2008 server runs...
DC - 192.168.0.2 (adapter 2)
DHCP - 192.168.0.2 (adapter 2) range 192.168.0.10 to 192.168.0.90
Default gateway - 192.168.0.1
DNS - 192.168.0.2 (adapter 2)
Not sure what to set adapter 1 to?? This connects straight to the router but routers DHCP is off. Adapter 2 into my switch.
Any advice will be really appreciated, I've tried loads now to no avail so I've resorted to getting help
The servers default gateway is set as the routers 192.168.0.99 IP - is this correct?
I've also got the router listed as this IP as well under server options for DHCP - again, am I doing this right?
I'm having some really slow speeds between all network clients and slow internet speeds except on the server. I really can't fathom why, my layer 3 switch is collecting an IP from the DHCP scope so it's on the same network. No loopbacks either.
On one of my network clients, when I did an ipconfig I was getting a default gateway of 0.0.0.0 along with 192.168.0.99. I had to use netsh to get rid of this and it hasn't returned.
Also, would I gain much benefits from load balancing DNS?
