    Thanks for all your helps guys, made the changes today and it all seems to be working, all except for some stubborn bastard server that refuses to accept it's reserved IP and so sits there saying "limited or no connectivity", remove the reservation and it quite happily picks up an IP from the DHCP within seconds.

    Any suggestions?

    There could be two reasons. Either the IP is already in use (although generally speaking, you'll receive a message notifying you of a conflict), or secondly you're not entering all information.

    You need to enter an unused static IP, subnet mask, gateway and the primary DNS server. Secondary DNS is optional.

    I had a very similar experience with a network cctv camera and windows 2003 sp1. Have you tried creating a reservation with the same IP address, but a test machine's mac? At least that should tell you whether the IP is in use..

    I'm busy testing all your suggestions, I'm pretty sure there is nothing using the IP address already, busy doing network scans with Angry IP Scanner just to be 100% sure
