I am in a network with approximately 400 users, most of which are dynamically configured. We are starting to experience a situation where our computers are being issued 192. IP addresses instead of our 10.17 IP addresses. It seems to be getting worse and worse. I assume this is a DHCP problem but what is the fix? We have plenty of IP's to lease out. The problem is worse on Mondays when the computers are off all weekend and the IP renews itself. I originally thought this was a wireless problem, but it is even doing it to the hardwired desktops.
We are on Microsoft Server 2003.
