I have a win server 2k3 machine as a domain controller and a dhcp server. All of the wired machines work fine connecting to the domain controller and authenticating but the users that connect to the wireless router (and get their IPs from there) can't find the domain controller and access any of its resources.
So I ask, how do you get a computer to locate a domain controller on a network when it connects to a router on that network?
edit>the client is a win7 pro machine.
edit 2>I had a chance to try this out yesterday and it occurs to me that I left out an important piece of information: The router is the internet access as well.
Turning DHCP off on the router was no good; I could get all of the users logged onto the network and authenticated with the DC, but there was no internet. I did it the other way around and enabled DHCP on the router and disabled it on the server.
It works, every machine is on the internet, but I suspect that users aren't authenticating with the DC. I think this is the case because:
- I can't login to my machine with a different user account than one that has logged on to here in the past
- The "Network" name is just called "Network" in the network and sharing center (it was domainName.local before)
- Shared resources are sporadically unavailable.
I find it odd though because I can still access those resources (after a restart).
