New install of Server 2003 1-4CPU version (I believe this is the 64-bit
version). Installed it on a new hard drive 2 days ago, it installed fine and
I was able to authorize it over the internet.

However, once I set it up as a file server with DNS and DHCP I can no longer
access the internet getting the 'can't connect to the internet' message.

These are some of the things I have tried:

1. Checked my network connection. All information is as it should be,
however, I only see packets sent (366 in this case) and only have 6 packets
received.
2. Checked my DNS server: The internet address is not encluded. My DNS range
is 192.168.0.10 to 192.168.0.254 my current internet IP address is
67.78.154.73 (static IP from my internet provider).
3. Checked my DHCP server: As far as I can see the internet IP address is
not being picked up in anyway.
4. Installed a new NIC card, used a different cable, pluged the cable into
different router ports, tried different assigned static IP addresses.

Anyone have some suggestions on how to proceed short of starting over?

Thanks!
