DHCP giving incorrect subnet and dns server info

We are having issues with one of our sites getting the incorect subnet
mask and no dns server details given to workstations.

Could this be a router issue?

We are running NW6.5 sp4

Does IPCONFIG /ALL on the workstations show the correct DHCP server?

Packet traces of the DHCP exchange should help you pinpoint exactly where
the problem is.

OK, you'll need to look at packet traces to see exactly where the
problem is -- you'll be able to look into the packets to see exactly
what info the DHCP server is sending to the client.

On the workstation you can use Ethereal or Packetyzer (both free, the
latter built on Ethereal, but with a nicer interface) -- use Google to
locate these. On the server, you can use pktscan.nlm:
