Address Conflicts in Netware 4.1

By bizpro ·
I admit, I'm more that a little rusty with this version of Netware 4.1. Life is easy with DHCP Server/Client, but this version is giving me a headache. A cable broadband connection became available to my rural client. I switched them from DirecTV IP to the cable and replaced the hub with a D-Link Router and switch, and all seemed well. To avoid a conflict between the Netware Server and the router, I disabled the DHCP Server in rounter. I am begin getting conflicts during workstation logons with other workstations losing connectivety. I think my failure of knowledge in manipulating address assignments in Netware 4.1 is at the root. Should I assign permenant addresses in Netware or disable Netware in favor of the DHCP Server in the router? or something else? By the way, my client doesn't want to upgrade because this version has been bulletproof for them. Please help me, I've fallen and can't get up!

Let the NAT router assign IP numbers unless you have network printers. If you do the it gets a little more complicatd and fix IP numbers might be required.
Make sure they use the same format as the router, or whatever it is using.

PS 3.12 was bullet proof too, but didn't offer much. ;>

Thanks for the assistance with my problem. I found the time to hit the books, and set down with the File Server and check all the address settings. Netware was right on, and then I began to check workstations. Stupid me!! I added two new workstations and to speed things up I cloned the hard drives to one of the existing workstations. Lesson: cloned hard drives retain the internal network address of the parent. Hence, duplicate addresses. Problem solved, I apologize to Netware.
