Clients cannot see 827 router

My clients cannot access our 827 ADSL router, though it works from the server it is connected to. I can ping the NIC the router is attached to but not the router.


MS NT4 Server (sp6a), two NIC's (1-LAN, 1-DSL)

-NIC1 TCP:,,no Gateway

-NIC2 TCP:,, (GW)

-IP Forwarding Enabled


MS Win 98

-TCP: 10.127.1.x,, (GW)

827 Router


tracert on clients will go to the server LAN NIC ( but no further.

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Clients cannot see 827 router

Hi, you can try to set the gateway on NIC1 to the ip address of NIC2. (it is never a good idea to have a empty gateway on a WindowsNT).

Or else you can try to make a route statement on your server.


route ADD MASK

I tried both options, seperate and combined with no change. The empty gateway on NIC1 was from a Microsoft document for setting up dual NIC's on an NT server.

enabling RIP on NT and CISCO could be an option

Re: Clients cannot see 827 router

RIP had already been enabled on the server and I tried adding RIP to the router, which didn't work. The router is operating in a Bridge mode as we have static IP address to the internet.
