Hello all, Im somewhat new to the server OS but im trying to play around with setting the server up performing the functions of my router (DHCP DNS and a type of firewall). Really the only reason for doing this is because i can. Just trying to learn the OS. Ive got two NICs on the server. Im looking more for just some general guidelines about how to set this up. Do i use one nic to plug in the internet and the other into the network and bridge them? Im familiar with the settings of DHCP and DNS but not how they would get managed from a hardware side. Also i know the router i had came with a firewall protection (though limited). Is there a way to implement that feature in server 2008? Thanks for all replies!
Trying to get online on my PC after work, no program that required internet connectivity, IE, Chrome, different video games, would work. Check modem and router, rebooted bout a couple times, checked cabling, cables are good. The PC seems to see the network cable when it's hooked up, however I'm still unable to connect to anything requiring the internet. WiFi works, same ethernet cable thats in the PC i removed and plugged into my laptop, with wireless turned off, and can surf fine so it's not a cabling splice or split issue. Device manager states theres no malfunctions with the NIC, have made no changes to firewall settings. Not real sure what else to do. Just get home, yesterday no issues, today can't get online. Running out of ideas to troubleshoot. Any help would be most appreciated. Modem & Router connectivity: Windows XP: TWC provider: No upgrades to software or hardware recently. Was working fine yesterday, today not so much.
tomutwit posted a topic in Networking BoardI have a Windows 7 laptop and a Windows XP desktop. The desktop is wired to the router and printer. The laptop is wirelessly connected to the router. I want to be able to print via the Network thing but its asking me for passwords and I don't know what to put. I've emailed Sky, my broadband provider, but that barely helped at all. You people are my last hope! Here's a diagram:
