I'm more of a "StackOverflow" kind of guy, so the server stuff kind of eludes me.
I have been having some serious issues with my router going down in the middle of the night lately, and I'm concerned that I am putting too much load on it. In order to remove some load, I'd like to run DHCP off of my Server 2003 Standard box that I am running in my basement.
Can someone help me with a short "this plugs into this, make sure this is off/on" and point me in the right direction?
Here is my home network.
Shaw Docsys Modem --> D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router
The router then plugs into all of my clients respectively
Here is a list of the clients... being descriptive to show network load...
- Sony Playstation 3
- D-Link DSM-520 Media Lounge
- My Apple iPhone
- Wife's Apple iPod Touch
- Apple Airport Express (goes to home theater for media streaming)
- My MacBook Pro
- Wife's MacBook
- My iMac G5
- Server 2003 Standard
- Trixbox IP PBX
- Wife's Business PC
- My Business PC
- My Business Noteook
- Daughters Netbook
- My Linksys SPA-941 IP Telephone
- Wife's Linksys SPA-941 IP Telephone
- D-Link DNS-323 Network Attached Storage
As you can see, there is a lot of "stuff" hanging off this router and I'm sure it's not designed for this much load. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
