    My office has Windows 2003 server, we have 10 workstations with 2000 pro.
    We are connected to DSL
    There is a Firewall/Router/modem for internet access. We have a cable from it to our network switch. The server and all workstations have cables to the network switch.

    Our problem is: Sometimes one or all of the workstations will not be able to connect to the Server. Which causes us not to be able to get to our Accounting software or to the internet. We find this happens when there is an interruption to the internet connection.

    We shut down all the computers, reset the Internet Router, then turn on the computers and we can connect.

    The ISP had a man set everything up for us. So I am not too sure how the server is set up.

    My question is , should we set up another computer as the DHCP server and the server we have only as a file/print server. So when the Internet disconnects we will still be able to connect to the server for files and printing.

    Or is there settings on our server that need changed.

    I know I have not given you all the information that you need but, I will get the answers for you, I hope someone can help.
