    I have the following hardware setup:

    An ISP gateway, a Router, a Windows SBS 2008 Server

    The Router is connected to the ISP gateway and has its DHCP Server option disabled.

    The server is connected to the Router.

    I used Windows SBS 2008 console to connect to the internet through the wizard which assigned the server to be as the DHCP Server with the following static IP:



    The server connects to the internet, however loading sites is a bit slow and sometime I get a DNS Probe message and it works again when I reload.

    I open the DNS manager on the server, and I right clicked on the server and properties, forwarders I entered the router IP address.

    In the General tab I have the IP listener set to only the IP of the server. and I chose Secure and non secure access.

    Now the real problem is my desktop that is on the domain, is able to connect to the router and obtain an IP address.

    But no internet. It shows I am connected to the internet but browsing give me DNS error messages on the site page.

    The desktop machine has the IPv4 property of the LAN set to DHCP and the DNS entry is set to which is the server

    Can someone be kind enough to provide me with the correct method to setup the DNS on the SBS 2008 so that the server and the clients can connect and resolve their name queries?

    Thank you in advance.
