Please someone advise. I have one server with 2 PC’s hanging off it. I only have 56k as I live in the hills = bull I know = no ADSL poor show, but one has to live with what one has. I have set-up server with the modem with ICS enabled to feed the PC’s.

PC’s & 4 | PC’s Gateway


Is down red arrow is down, witch I take as DHCP is not active. The IP number displayed [] = don’t know why this IP number?

Is green arrow up, Status = Responding [] = don’t know why this IP number?

I keep getting the fallowing errors in Event Viewer

Event ID 62

Event ID 1051

The DHCP/BINL service has determined that it is not authorized to service clients on this network for the Windows domain: Muos.co.uk.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve the errors?

RE: Network Challenge


When using ICS - let the OS use its defaults.
Remove or disable the DHCP server - ICS has a built in DHCP server instead.
Remove or disable WINS - no need for it in small LAN.

Disable ICS, and then re-enable it. Let windows setup the LAN nic with .
Configure all other workstations for automatic IP (DHCP client) with no manual configuration.
Make sure that clients get a 192.168.0.x address, and DHCP server + DNS server of

If you're server had AD (Domain Controller) and DNS, then make sure your DNS server is not acting as a root server.
If so, delete the "root" zone in DNS manager, which is shown as a dot "." under forward lookup zones.
