Is it a true server or an XP machine being used as a file server? Is there a domain.local or a workgroup? If it's an XP machine being used as a file server, there is a 10 connection limit.

post the results of an ipconfig /all from the server and a workstation for review.

I would recommend you review your event viewer logs for errors.

Also provide your server specs [cpu/ram/drive config,,,]

Is the server's static IP in the DHCP range? It looks like it is.

It's supposed to have a static IP & not be in the DHCP range.

It does not have to be a gateway to be a DHCP server but I am guessing you are using your router as the DHCP server is that what you are saying?

If so then you will need to setup a reservation in your router for the servers IP address so that it does not cause a conflict by giving the IP out to another computer.. As suggested you may want to use your server for DHCP instead of your router because it is easier to configure on the server.

I Know it's the best way to use server as gateway but the problem with my IT Department is they always want to use Router as gateway..don't know the reason behind it..

I use BELKIN N1 MIMO Router..do u know how to set reservation at belkin for not assigning same IP to server and other workstation?

Something sounds strange. Did you add a router to the network, on your own, without notifying the IT dept?

Are you typing \\192.168.1.100 or the server name? Use the IP address if you aren't already.
