clients cannot connect after server reboot NW65 SP8

We downed a NW65 SP8 server and moved to a new office. Moved clients as well. Nothing changed (all the same hardware, users, etc.), but after starting up the server, no users can connect. Also cannot ping the server, which probably explains the connection problem. Each workstation has a static IP address on the network, and the same subnet as the server (192.168.1.2 is the server's address). I do not know what to check. I do not understand what could have changed in a reboot. I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Monitor, LAN/WAN, any activity on the Network cards? Check the error
counters and traffic counters. Also check that you have indeed bound the
correct IP to the correct NIC.-

Anders, thanks so much for helping out. When you mentioned the word "bound", my old Netware 3,12 days came to life. I found the problem.....there are 2 NICs in the server....you know where I'm going....I'm embarrassed, but once again, thanks for your time 🙂
