    Hi everyone.

    I'm writing because at work I had an small network with a Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory, DNS server and DHCP server services running.

    A couple of days ago I bought a Linksys WRT54GL, which I flashed with DD-WRT v23 SP1.

    My plan now that I have the router is having the DHCP server and DNS server services under the router's control. With the DHCP I've got no doubt, my doubt it's only with the DNS server service. At the router I can active DNSMasq to have the DNS server and DHCP server services all together. I started to look information about installing a Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory and without DNS Server service in the same computer (note: when you install the Active Directory service, the installation force you to install the DNS Server service in the same computer).
    I found this article:


    I've been looking without success if DNSMasq accomplish the two conditions mentioned in that article.

    Anyone here has done with success what I'm planning to do?? If the answer is "yes", how can I do it?

    Thanks to anyone that help to clear my mind.

    why not just let the router give out IP's with the DNS pointing to the Win2k Server and the gateway to the router itself? i'd do that over trying to fight it.
