Win2003 R2 DHCP Setup Help !!! not responding to DHCP requests!

By ly2016 ·
Please help, our server is not responding to DHCP requests!!

We just got T1 service installed, and we have 1 Dell 2950 server, it will act as web server, database server, application server and a domain controller.

AD is installed, and dcpromo'd.

now i want to run DHCP on this server, the DHCP on the cisco router is turned off. (we were using the DSL router as DHCP before)

My connection is setup like this

T1 -> Cisco 1721 router -> switch -> server, workstations, net printers..etc.

We are assigned static IPs from our ISP, like below

usable IP range: -
Broadcast address:
router IP
subnet mask:
DNS 1:
DNS 2:

NIC is setup as static IP like above, I assigned to the server

so I setup the DNS on the server, and in the NIC properties, DNS is setup to the server IP, and in DNS forward i set it to forward all queries to our ISP DNS /3

the server has access to internet and everything.

DHCP is setup like this
Start IP:
End Ip :
Scope Option>Router> (T1 router)
Scope Option>DNS Server> /3

while on the workstations, they are not getting any DHCP response at all.

Did i assign wrong IPs in that DHCP table?

I do not want to assign real IPs to workstations, I want to assign private block of IPs to the internal machines, like how it was before with the DSL router.

Can anyone point me to the right direction? Please help!!
