Resolving an IP conflict

How do I resolve an IP conflict between a modem/router installed by Verizon and my server. It is causing problems with my network and they can't figure it out either.

What router is it? What is the server running? What other machines are on the network?
Verizon usually uses Dlink or Actiontec. I assume we are talking about internal IP address. If so, why won't static IPs solve the problem?

I am guessing they have router set to IP 192.168.1.1, and that is the IP address of my server that runs my proprietary software. It is a bowling center, the back office client is the one experiencing problems. Anything I need to send out to the server (all my standalone applications basically) hangs up and refuses to load. There is a back office client where we do our league work and price changes, etc. and send them out to the front desk, which is the server. The server runs the lanes via an ETHost. There are also terminals at the bar and snack bar transmitting sales data to the back office (which it cannot do right now because of whatever Verizon did) so I have them changed over to local registers off the network until I get straightened out.
I disabled their network connection which had the static IP for the DSL service but I am still having difficulties with everything that is an application. The rest of the desktop functions normally. I have checked the hardware, done diagnostics on all, to no avail.

You still didn't tell me what router you have, although by the IP address I would think it's not a Dlink.

There is no reason why you can't change the internal IP of the router to 192.168.1.254

It would still have it's external IP address from Verizon.

Change the router IP to anything other then 192.168.1.1

Use 192.168.1.254 should resolve your issue.
