I have an existing network with Verizon FiOS that has the router built in to the modem. We have 3 computers hooked to that network....2 wired, 1 wireless. I have a server machine that I am using to practice for my MS certification exams. I have Windows Server 2003 installed. It is an Active Directory domain controller,with DNS and DHCP. I also have an old laptop with XP Pro. Neither of these are on our existing network. My goal is to connect these 2 machines to another router (with wireless capabilities turned off) and then connect this router to the existing one to provide internet access to the new machines. I want the server to operate as DNS and DHCP. I do not want the router(s) to do it. So, the existing router (FiOS) has an IP of 192.168.1.1, and it gives IP's to the 3 machines connected to it. This is fine, but when I connect the server and XP machines to the new router, I want the server to give out IP addresses, not the router. I also want to be able to join the XP machine to the AD Domain on the server so I can start playing with RIS, and assigning permissions....and all the other stuff I need to learn for my exams. Existing router: Actiontec MI424-WR New router: Netgear WGR614 v10 All computers are XP Pro except for the server and one Windows 7 Ultimate laptop. Does anyone know how to do this and make everything work correctly? I hope I've given enough information Thanks in advance for any help!
