Thanks Gechurch,

Your advice worked perfectly, turning the DHCP server off on the modem, worked. All clients now request DNS and DHCP from my server.

A strange thing I have noticed the server auto configure is that, the DNS settings on the server has changed to 127.0.0.1 which I understand is the loopback address, which in a way makes sense as itself is there DNS server.

I do now have a separate NIC on my server, but I am using that solely for HyperV traffic on a private switch, so I can play/practice without interfering.
