Is my WAN1 port broken?

    Hello. I'm having a little trouble with my RV082.

    Basically, I have a small office of desktop PCs, a Windows Small Business Server, and the RV082 acting as a bridge to our T1 line.

    Internally, the SBS is also the DNS server. The DNS server has a forward lookup record pointing to our router.

    Everything works fine on WAN2. However, if I move the internet connection to WAN1, it starts to get weird: the SBS still resolves DNS for client desktops, but cannot resolve DNS for itself. That is, the server cannot access anything outside our router.

    When I switch back to WAN2, everything works fine again.

    Does this make sense to anyone? Is it possible that something is wrong with the router?

    I'm not completely farmilar with this router but i'll try....
    Can you SBS access the internet at all when WAN1 is used?
    Can your workstations access the internet when WAN1 is used?
    Is WAN1 enabled and configured the same as WAN2?
    (is WAN1 setup for DHCP or something)
    Does your ISP have any limits on the MAC that must be used when connecting?
    Can you plug a PC directly into T1 and get online?

    In TCP properties, the SBS box should look at itself..and only itself...(it should have been done automatically when you ran the ICW)

    In the properties of your DNS server..in the DNS hive of MMC...the forwarders tab...you should have your ISPs 2x DNS servers (the ICW also would have done this when you ran it)

    All workstations should look at your SBS IP as their one and only DNS server...because they pull DHCP from your SBS box.
