Windows Small Business Server 2003

Reinstalled Windows Small Business Server 2003, which now has a wireless router. when we enter http://SERVER/ConnectComputer, we receive "unable to display page, or check "URL, cannot be found or is not available.

Should we assign IPs to each work station before attemting to have them join the domain?



You are going to have to have IP addresses on any device that you want to communicate with the server. That also includes the server.

I assume you have set up the wireless router to issue IPs Via DCHP ?

If so then you need to make sure that the DHCP on the router is set to give out valid IPs and subnet masks for your networks AND that it is issuing the IP of the SBS server as the DNS server.



Yes, make sure to assign a static ip to your server. Also you can configure a dhcp scope on your wireless router to assign ip's to your workstations. Make sure they are all on the same subnet.



In an SBS network you definitely want the SBS Server to handle DHCP and be the ONLY DNS for the clients. If you do not do this, you will break the local resolution that the SBS will expect and you WILL have mystery issues running the wizards down the line.

no do not manually config IP's for each workstation this should be handled by the SBS2003 server. On the wireless router turn off DHCP.
