    Hi, I'm a DBA and hope to help people with there database questions. However networking has always been my weakest area and I'm trying to change that. However, I've gotten in way over my head with this one. My kids and I built a server and I've installed Windows Server 2012 Data Center Edition on it with the intention of making it our DC and DNS server as well as to host some hyper-v instances. However, I can't seem to get this thing to work. Everything I've read tell me I have to give it a static IP but every time I try it loose connection to my router. I finally relized that I had to make the IP on the same subnet as the router. My router is and the DHCP ip my server was receiving was so I figured I'd make it and set the scope in my router from .2 -.49 but that didn't work. I really don't know what I'm doing and the network guys are work are trying to help me but it's not working and I live almost 50 miles from my office. Please help.
