You can install Network Address Translation module and configure the Network Interface card one for internal address and other for external .

To server the IPs automatically to the client systems you have to install DHCP Dynamic host configuration protocol . You have to assign a pool of IPs.

Find in the windows 2003 help for further guidance.

How do I make my spare router pick up the signal from my router? I want to connect my Dish to the internet by connecting it to my spare wireless router. How do I make my spare pick up the signal from my normal router so I can connect my dish to it?
