Unable to update gateway address on Win 2k8 DHCP server

I have a Windows Server 2008 machine acting as my domain DHCP server. I am attempting to change the default gateway assigned to DHCP clients. I have gone into the DHCP admin tool and changed the "Router" setting under Server Options, but clients are still pulling the old gateway info. I have tried several times to release/renew the IP, but it still keeps pulling the old gateway address. I have restarted the DHCP service, dleted the previous lease for the machine in question, tried a different client, and rebooted the server... The server shows the updated address in the "Router" option, but is still handing out the old gateway.

After coming back to the server after letting it sit for awhile, I looked at the DHCP config again, and it was showing the old address again. I updated it again, and it took right away! Very Very strange...

When you do an ipconfig /all on the client does it show the IP address of the server?

Yes, ipconfig /all shows that the client is pulling its IP from the same server that I have updated.
