I am looking for some advice please, I have just installed sbs2011 for the first time and I am running the connect to the internet wizard on the console but it fails saying your router is not configured correctly.
Excuse my ignorance but I am new to this.
Firstly my router is the dhcp server I am reluctant to change this as it was supplied by our security company for our CCTV / security equipment so it’s not effectively mine no mess with.
The server is connected to the internet as I can browse the web fine with it, but the wizard fails
The server IP details are
Ip – 192.168.1.2
Sub – 255.255.255.0
Gw – 192.168.1.254 (router address)
Dns – 127.0.0.1 (local host) - IS THIS RIGHT?
all workstations have the routers address in the DNS section
The router dhcp range is set to start at 64 and up so there is no risk of a conflict.
The only changes to router I have made is opening up ports 443,21,110,80,25 to ip 192.168.1.2.
I have seen this
and it mentions that the router port should be 192.168.x.1 could this be the problem? I am wary of changing it as it will probably mess with the security equipment.
Or am I missing something else

If you cannot login to the router on port 80 - then the wizard will throw an error at that point.
You can safely ignore.
For essentials, you dont need all those additional ports.
Are you running SBS Standard or SBS Essentials?
It sounds to me like you are running Standard, it will make a difference to the rest of the advice offered.
