Can DHCP cause network anomalies?

Last Modified: 2015-03-23
Hello - we are experiencing weird behavior from our Windows Server 2008R2 LAN  - some servers lose access to the Internet but are still accessible to the local network, and at times ALL servers and services drop off the network, but come back in 5-10 minutes time.  So we're wondering if this is somehow caused by DNS or DHCP or possibly a combination of things.  Just starting our investigation and looking for any help we can get.
