How do I restore the default scopes for DHCP?

After a power outage, my SBS DHCP stopped working.  I could make the clients connect by giving them manual IPs.  I deleted the scopes in my DHCP which were something like 192.168.0.x and 74.x.x.x.

I redefined a new scope, and the DHCP is working for the clients, assigning addresses, etc.  However, RWW stopped being able to connect to client computers.  It can connect to the server just fine, but not the client computers.

My configuration
SBS 2003 with two NICs
NIC 1 is WAN, attached to Internet, and assigned
NIC 2 is LAN, attached to switch, and assigned
DHCP server is on

When I deleted the DHCP scopes, I created a new one with a range of through .254

When RWW client computer didn't work I did the following:
1. Uninstalled and reinstalled DHCP and set up the scope as listed above
2. Ran Connect to the Internet and Email wizard
3. Ran the Remote Connection wizard.

No errors, just can't RWW in to client computers that are assigned IPs by DHCP.
I set up one machine with a static IP, and I can connect to it through RWW.  I gave it
 I wanted to go back to the old scopes, but I can't get them back.

Any help?
