    The ip address refered to in DHCP as the router is simply the default gateway for your clients, ie the way to the outside world. If you have ISA in between your clients and the outside world then the internal address of your ISA box should be the router. If the clients are going to access the internet directly through the router then the ADSLs IP is what you want to put in there.

    It depends which way you look at it, and what you want to achieve.

    In theory, you could set the default gateway of your server to the internal IP of your router and then configure the dhcp scope to use IPs in the same range so it all works happy days there.

    IE,

    Router 192.168.1.1 / Subnet 255.255.255.0
    Server 192.168.1.2 / Subnet 255.255.255.0 / Gateway 192.168.1.1

    DHCP 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.20 with the gateway set as 192.168.1.1 (router) and DNS as 192.168.1.2 (server).

    Should make some sense with a bit of luck?

    You'll need to log into the routers configuration page to disable dHCP. You will need to do this as for the clients to work with Active Directory properly they must use the server as the DNS server. This setting will be pushed out by DHCP from the server.

    To log in to the router you will need to type its ip address into a browser and login to it, probably user name admin password admin.

    The other option is to configure any clients ip settings manually with an appropriate ip address, default gateway to the router and DNS to your servers ip.

    Hi Steven

    Before everyone goes off on a tangent trying to answer your questions, could you explain a little background about what you are doing?

    It seems strange to have an ISA server and then be adding a DC and all of this going through a wireless router to T'internet.

    I take it this is not a school setup?

    regards

    Simon

    I'm guessing a keen student trying to get himself some server experience at home.

    Take a look through that (and maybe the rest of the wiki?) to see whether that helps.
