DHCP problems with Win Svr 2012

I am experiencing some problems with our DHCP using Win Svr 2012.
We have 1 Svr and 21 workstations
I cannot ping any of the workstations from the server.
I can only ping the server from two of the workstations, the remaining 19 can't ping the server.
There are no apparent issues with using shared folders or any other network features between the server and any of the workstations (everything we do is working fine).
All of the Pc's show up with IP addresses in the DHCP (no conflicts).
I did notice that the DHCP Server Name is listed as a strange IP address instead of the Server Name, even though it is bound to the servers IP.
We do have a static IP address with our ISP and no it's not the same as the one shown as DHCP Server Name.

The Server is also DNS and AD DS.

Any help would be appreciated.

If the problem is with pinging then it doesn't sound like a DHCP issue. In fact, the only thing in your question related to DHCP is apparently this "strange IP" but then you didn't give any more information. What is strange about it? What problems with DHCP are you having? You need to provide quite a bit more info.

Your router DHCP seems to be active here.

Problem fixed - AV Firewall settings on PC's not correct. Thanks Gary
