      Can you post an ipconfig /all from the server and from one of the clients? I can't really follow what you are saying from all of that text....
      TIA

          Is your SBS 2003 configured with 2 NICs? That is the preferred way for 2003, but if you ever plan to migrate to 2008/11 then you will have to flatten it to one NIC.
          However if you have 2 NICs then your INTERNAL NIC should be hosting the DNS and DHCP - and that is how it is set up out of the Box. How have you managed to change it?
          I suggest that you find the "Change Server IP" wizard in the Server Manager to change it to something else, then run it again to change it back again to your current IP. That will likely fix your DNS/DHCP.
          Again please post ipconfig /all from the server and workstation asap.
          TIA

              The message is because you are using your router for DHCP. Standard SBS setup makes it the DHCP server - it is worthwhile to switch, IMHO.
