We have a small network with static public IP. We are planning to expand the network by setting up a router and putting the new workstations on DHCP server. How do I set up the router to be able to access all the shares on the machines with static private IPs?

Going to need more information on this one, like how many machines you have, what kind of router you are going to be installing.
There is no reason as to why you can't get the DHCP server to issue out private IPs to the machines that need them.

In order to assign an ip address with dhcp accross a router you need to set up a dhcp relay agent in the new subnet. You also need to set up your router to route traffic between subnets. This is done differently on different routers, so you are going to have to read the white paper on your router.

Unless you plan on paying for those static addresses. Let the router be the static and nat translate to the pc's.

The current routers perform DHCP, and nat translate. You only pay for one address. And get the firewall benefit of the address nat.

Good Luck Lee

You don't have to use the dhcp. You can assign static addresses behind the router.
