    i've been having trouble with the RV082. We recently moved to a new office where we had the RV082 and a server. After we moved, for what ever reason when connected on the network with the server, no one on the network can access the server to pull up shared folders on the server or access exchange 03 via outlook 03. DHCP is disabled on the server. When i removed the RV082 from the network and replaced it with a WRT54G, everything worked fine. I want to put the RV082 back on the network so we can have a dual Wan connection and the RV082 was extremely stable (75+ days uptime).

    I can't tell, this is an office environment and i cant put the RV082 back on the network until everyone leaves. The one thing that i can remember is that the netbios name of the server wouldnt resolve when on the network.

    DHCP "should", IMO, be run from the server....I prefer that over running in from routers...ties things together better in AD. But you can get away OK by running it from a router too....long as you follow some basics. The primary thing is...for DNS...your DCs IP address MUST be the one and only IP that the workstations get.

    the ip address of the server is not in the range for dhcp clients.

    But the weird thing is that we had it working fine w/ the same settings and hardware that we have now, but when we moved to the new office it started giving us problems. No new hardware or software was used or needed.

    If it's a small office how is it that the server isn;t in the range for the dhcp clients?

    The server should be handling all the dhcp/dns info. Windows 2003 domain won't really run without it.
