Here's what I've got. 2 internet connections router 1: 192.168.10.1 router 2: 192.168.11.1 bothe connect to a load balancer at 192.168.254.254 SBS server acting as DHCP on the 192.168.254.X scope router 1 is a wireless router (netgear WGR614v9) When i try and connect to the wireless, i cant get an IP/Connection. I presume this is because the router is on a different subnet to the DHCP server. If I manually specify the IP address for the wireless clients on the 192.168.10.X it's ok. If i turn on DHCP on the router, will this conflict with the DHCP on the SBS server as it only likes to have 1 DHCP on the network. Or is there something i can configure in the router to get the wireless to act as more of an access point on the right subnet? TIA Mark

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well you cannot have two DHCP servers in the same subnet, if so then there will be in conflict.

=================
You can use DHCP reservations on one of the DHCP servers if you wish a host to get a specific IP address on a subnet each time. Otherwise, Yasir is correct that two DHCP servers on a network will create issues.
