basic DHCP install (ISC DHCPd version 3.0.1)

my network is simply
Internet -> Firewall /DHCP Server ( -> access point -> multiple clients

Im trying to configure DHCP to assign IPs to the clients and allow them to still access the internet. Currently while everyone is using a static address everything works fine, but when I try to have one obtain an IP, it just keeps the old static address and wont let them access the internet.

my config file is as follows:
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
option domain-name-servers,;
option domain-name "<EDITED>";
ddns-update-style ad-hoc;

subnet netmask {

Finally, should the network interface be setup for the exteral (eth0) or internat interface? and should I setup the access point to use DHCP?

Thank you.
