    I am the Network Admin of a fairly small org. I have a wireless network running on a Windows 2000 server. The network consists of 10 workstations and two hardware access points.

    My server's IP address keeps on changing automatically and I have to change it manually on a regular basis to keep my users connected.

    Please shed some light on this...

    I assume you set them staticly via network properties? What is handling the DHCP server?
    If you are the only admin, Id try changing your password, also Id check for intrusion.

    Make sure the IP on the server is set for static, not autmatic. Probably one of the AP's is running DHCP and assigning address.

    If the AP's are on the private side of the server (which they should be) then they shouldn't be causing the server's address to change. If you go to the properties sheet of the NIC that is attached to the private side of the network you should be able to change the IP address to static. Your server should be your DHCP server as well since it is such a small network. Your wireless AP's can be set up to act as a bridge so that connected devices can be on the same subnet and use the main server as DHCP.
