Question:
When installing the server I have defined all WAN IP and upstream settings. My client PC receives an IP address from the DHCP server. Nevertheless I cannot access the Internet.
Answer:

First of all verify onto your client PC that you have received an IP address (via Start -> Run -> cmd -> ipconfig /all). Verify that the WINS address is being filled out correctly.
In order to define correctly the WINS settings onto the server, go to the menu Configuration -> IP network -> Nameservers. Change this value to the IP address as defined under the tab Interfaces (per default 192.168.0.100).
