DHCP Problems

Our small office network consist of 24 computers and a few printers, a couple of days ago we
had a few power cycles before the power completely shut down. When it was finally restored
we could either access the internet or the server running IBM AIX (unix)..This was possible if we assigned static IP address pointing to the server( access server) remove IP addresses access
internet.. This looks like the DHCP info was scrambled, so how do I refresh, reset, correct my
problem with DHCP.

Where is your dhcp server? Do you have a router, or are you using the dhcp server on a linux / windows server box?

The IBM AIX (unix) box is the dhcp server, there is also a ATT dsl router plugged into the same switch

Okay, it is possible that the dsl router has been reset in the power outage, and is now also acting as a dhcp server. You can only have one dhcp server on your network otherwise they will collide with each other.

Go into your dsl router's settings (it probably has a settings webpage on the same IP as the dsl router), and see if you can disable the dhcp server. Note that if the router is more "end user friendly" it might not actually call it a "dhcp server" but something a little more dummy friendly :)

What's the model of your dsl router? I can try and find some documentation for you.
