Depending on the setting of your ISP you should only apply DNS or gateway maybe. But the way DHCP works it should look for a server once the client comes online and get the ip addr but its also possible to get the DNS and Gateway from the DHCP server. So check with your isp if you need DNS or gateway settings and supply them and the rest leave it blank

If you are using the dhcp funtions in the router, you should not use them on the server. You can set all the other machines to obtain ip automatically. Set your server up with a static ip and the appropriate subnet mask and it should work.
