after so many hours the dhcp server just drops the external ip and i am unable to ping outside of network. ive read up on the leases part of the dhcp configuration but not exactly sure if that is my problem or not, is there anything i need to check as to why the connection to the outside world is being dropped randomly?
Are you unable to get to the Internet from any of your machines or a select few?
Your dhcpserver IP is in the IP pool of 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254. This could be a problem area. Change the pool from say, 192.168.1.26 to 192.168.1.200. That will leave you with unallocated IPs for your servers.
