    WHY? Your router has DHCP built in and is free so there's no need for that choice. If you have one of the Windows Server 200x systems to run a Domain Controller environment, then DHCP is also available there!
    sorry, there's several things wrong here. First, the switch needs to be attached directly to the router, not your PC.
    This will allow all systems to get DHCP configuration from the same source and
    to use the correct ip subnet and routing to see each other AND then Internet.

    Why demand 10.61.32.1? It will never work when the router above is at 192.168.1.x
