Yes, I would set the gateway to 192.168.1.1.See that makes no sense now... you can't get DHCP to pass to the server, yet you have NO errors and NO packet loss with static IP's on the local lan.
I apologize in advance for what may seem like dumb questions but I feel they have to be asked:
static ip testing:
When testing with static IP's are you setting the test system's default gateway to your ASUS router?
While you have not stated you are using reservations based on your past comments with DHCP and your servers ip's assigned by dhcp it sounds like you have reservations set up.
If you have dhcp reserverations then are you changing the MAC address of the reservation to match the MAC address of the port you are using on the server?
I believe there are two ports on that card therefore 2 different mac addresses, which will also be different from your 10Gbe card's mac addresses?
This card's MAC address has been long gone from my DHCP reservations list. Since before I even made this thread. Once I can get things to work (may be with a different card, if that's the issue), it will be added back. It just grabs a DHCP address from the random range pool. Not really concerned about giving it a reserved address at this point.
This is the XL710-QDA1, the single-port card.
