This question already has an answer here:
I have static IPs on many of my Windows computers in our Windows 2008 domain. In the network settings at each, I have an a static IP and subnet. The default Gateway is set to our Sonicwall.
Question: Under DNS servers, do I just list the Server IP? I've found this works fine on XP through Win7, but Win8 needs an alternate DNS to get to the Internet. (using 126.96.36.199). Do I need to list the Server IP at all?
