NFS and the export file

I am running a server that is using NFS to share the drives. My workstation gets an IP adresss from the router. Most of the time that IP is but everytime the ip is not 101, I can no longer map the drives. The only way I can do it is if both rows in the export file match the IP address that the workstation received.
I would like to set a range so it connects as long as the IP is within that range.
What am I doing wrong?

First, one should set up the DHCP server (router) to leave some IP range static.
Another way is set up the DHCP to associate given IP address with your MAC address so it will be same every time.
Finally, -network -mask in exports file would give you a range. man exports
