    hmm; as you express it, this is literally impossible.
    There should only be one DHCP server on this lan. With the addresses you've provided, the server has only one connection to the router and thus it can literally read/write to one device at a time.
    Code:
     
    ==== router#1
          (128.1)
              |
              + (128.08) Server
              |
              + (128.100) router ===
    I fear you are attempting to connect each router to an ISP and get twice the bandwidth;
    usually it is wired like this
    Code:
     
    ===router#1 ------ server ---- router#2 ===
    the server would need two NIC cards, but this never works due to the routing tables.
