    Workgroup and Domain Setup
    « on: December 08, 2015, 05:24:56 AM »
    We have a Server in place, for my small business and the Server is another room while the other clients is in a different one.

     Room A, has internet connection access while Room B, has the Server.  I have a cable that runs from Room A CentryLink PK5001Z to Cisco RV042 too a D-Link DSH-16 in Room B that runs a cable too the Servers Router Linksys BEFSR41, too the Server. 

    The Server's Router has DHCP disabled well as the Wireless Router connected too that.

    Now the cable from the D-Link DSH-16 that runs too the Server's Router is connected into the uplink port or should it be port 1?

    Server, DHCP - Router - Wireless Router

    Clients, Internet Modem (wired/Wireless) - Wireless Router

    This network needs some serious work - You appear to have 3 different devices capable of acting as routers, you should only have one router on the network.  You are also using a hub, it's 2015, get a switch.

      I only see two that act as a Router.  I know that it does need some work too :(  I can put a switch there but, thought that the hub was a switch :(

        I put the switch in place and connected both of the routers too it and then ran a cable too the hub.

        You still have two routers on the network, why? And now a switch as appeared from nowhere yet you are still using the hub...

        What are you actually trying to do?

          Then you should have your modem connected to one Router, no other routers at all.  Then you should connect switches and cables as required to this router to run cables to the devices.  Most likely you would want one switch per room and a single cable linking the two.

            Well, if you have connected it exactly as I described the internet connection will already be available in the other room.

            Is this not working?

              That really isn't helpful... How exactly is everything connected?  Give makes and models of all the hardware.

                This is getting ridiculous now, how many times have I said that you should not have two routers on the network at the same time.  The server should not have it's own router, it should just be connected to a switch.  The CenturyLink device should be set to act as a modem only, that should then connect to the RV042 which should connect to the DSH-16 (Please replace this with a switch, it's 2015, using a hub is ridiculous).  There should be no router for the server, get rid of the BEFSR41, this is only going to cause confusion.

                Please, go and teach yourself how networks work, you are doing this for your job, you should understand what you are doing and not be relying on us to help you do your job.

                  Why are you changing the router for a different one?  How many times do I have to say, only have one router!  If you have taken the router out, then yes, the rest of the network is probably a different subnet, change the network settings on the server to match this!

                  It appears as though you are making no attempts to learn or teach yourself how networking works and instead are just bodging things and then asking us to hold your hand through fixing it.  This is your job, you should know how to do it, please, go and read up on networking and systems administration and figure out how to do your job properly.
