I have Server Essentials 2016. Each client that I connect gets their DNS set to the SE2016 box during connection. My router has it's DNS set to the ISP. I have some weird issues with the internet just not working at times, but it seems it might just be DNS issues.
What should the setup be for the router and the clients?
- Should the router have it's DNS set to the SE2016 box?
- Should I change my clients to use the router for DNS instead?
- Should I add my router as a second DNS to my clients in case the SE2016 box isn't handling the request?
- Anything else I should know?
I'm sure there is a correct way of setting this up, but I'm not really finding much info on this. I probably just don't know what to search for to get the answer.
This is a home setup, and the SE2016 box is pretty much only used for backups and a file share.
