Is it possible that you have another DHCP server on the network.

You could always check the TCP/IP alternative settings on the network parameters to see if they have these manually set.

Could you provide an ipconfig /all of the affected machines?

Do you have an ADSL router on the same network?  192.168.1.1 sounds more like a router!

What is the DHCP server??   Is both leases listed on the server?  Or the new conflicting lease?  It's more then likely someone plugging in a piece of hardware with DHCP enabled if you don't see the troubled lease on your DHCP server.

PS, this doesn't sound like a Windows 7 issue unless you have cloned emac addresses on the NICs.

If 192.168.1.1 is not a recognised address in your network  it may be worth trying to open this in a browser to see if you get a login - and it may tell you what it is as well.
