Having a few problems with the DHCP server seeming to be on the blink.
Everything appears to be setup correct and i can add devices with a static IP in the dhcp range but cannot get them to assign via DHCP.
I have three machines and a print server on the network. Two of the machines are still working fine via DHCP, but i am thinking that they are still running through the lease.
I have tried and swapped out cables, ports, nic's and anything else i can do, reset the router and pretty much everything else except from flashing the firmware. I have not done this as the network is a commercial setup with VPN's and i need to programme some dwntime in just in case it doesnt come back up straight away.
In the meantime i am trying to see if there is anything else i can try.
As i said i have diagnosed as much as i can and am assuming it is the DHCP, i have found one other instance of a failing DHCP server on the net but that was a symptom of playing around with the firmware.
PS. I have also a small piece of software that scans for print servers that are on the same segment, this also doesnt work as it did before. I can browse to the Print server via a direct IP address in Internet Explorer so i know it is on the same segment but the damn thing just wont pick it up, maybe some protocol blocking or firewall problem?
