I'll give the equipment break down first .
Router Linksys NR041 wired NAT
3Com Office Connect 8port hub
HP Super Stacker II 24 port hub
HP DirectJet EX Plus3 3port print server
11 computers mix 98se /XP Pro
1 HP LC3 server / WindowsNT 4 SP6a (use to back up the kid's computers)
I want opinions if I should keep using DHCP or switch to Static IP . I use VNC to monitor my kid's computers and do general maintance on them . When the power goes out the router scrambles the IP addresses . This makes it hard to keep the machines' IP addresses straight . I know I can access the router to obtain a new list of the IPs but I was wondering if I should just go static . I guest I'm just lazy . I'm open for advice or just opinions .
