O.K. A business client has a small LAN with a server (server 2008 R2) They had to unplug the router from the modem, but plugged it back in like a minute later. Now none of the computers have access to the server and the router doesn't see the server. I'm trying to fix this problem remotely for them but I'm only going on info they have given me.  Anyone have any ideas on this one?

Most of the time when customers do this I find that they plugged stuff in wrong.  Like the server will be in the WAN port of the router instead of the LAN port.  I'd check physical connections first.

Yes this is exactly what it was. They had plugged the cable from the router into the disabled NIC on their server.
