    I am running SBS 2003. Have Intel board with dual NIC's. Also setting up
    Linksys Business Class RSV4000 Router. I would like to configure it using
    only one NIC on the server.
    Which NIC, Network or Local Connection would I use?
    I have cable modem plugged into the Internet port on the router.
    I will plug the NIC from the server to the Ethernet Port on the router.
    Not sure which NIC to use.

    Thestarting IP for the router is default Would I use 1.2 for the
    local NIC?
    The router is configured with the static IP from the ISP

    Thank you for your posts, you read my mind on the DHCP.. was my next question.
    I am going to try the configuration now. I have the router set with the
    ports for SBS services. I will post with results.

    I configured the NIC as described in a Microsoft article on running SBS with
    one NIC. I had to delete the DHCP scope and add - with a few exclusions. The Internet connection wizard ran
    successfully. I booted a member pc and it was assigned a 1.5 IP address. I am
    able to view the networked pc's and connect to the server. I cannot go to the
    Internet from server or pc'c. I have checked that automatically check is
    checked in IE.
