Q

Is there a way to let my server provide IP addressing and Internet access control via a second NIC?

I have a Windows 2000 server configured as a PDC connected to a D-Link DI640 router, which is connected to a COX cable business modem. Is there a way to leave this setup alone but let my server provide IP addressing and Internet access control via a second NIC?
You need to start DHCP services on the server and use the NIC-2's IP address as the default gateway in all your machines. On this server you need to start routing and direct all packets to the outside world to the NIC-1. That should do it. You might have to add the routes manually for that.
