Please assist me in setting up this network?
Hey guys, this is my first day on this forum, was pushed to signing up due to the fact that after 4 days of attempting to resolve my problem, im still failing.
To have a network flow accordingly to this map:
Server(The Main PC - Linux)
Router now acting as a switch with DHCP Turned OFF(Router is a Linksys)
OTHER PC'S(Will be running Windows)
WHAT I NEED TO ACCOMPLISH
I want to no longer use my router to access internet nor its' DHCP services. I want my router to act solely as a switch with my server granting all PC's access to the internet.
I wish I knew, if any of you can please help me resolve this that would be greatly appreciated and a lesson well learned on my part.
Also, if possible I would prefer to use Fedora, but if there are other suggestions, im open to any distro as long as its stable, good and up to date.
I figure I will need to install DHCP, DNS, and some sort of NAT? im not sure tho, please help.
