  • Your new router may have a different IP address assigned to the WHS (and you eventually have added an entry to the hosts file of the client), or your WHS has a fixed IP address, which does not match the address range the new router has configured. Does the router interface show, which DHCP addresses have been given to which machine?

    If the IP address was a fixed one the best way to reconfigure would be to reconnect one client and the server to the old router (no Internet connection needed) and reconfigure the servers IP address via Remote Desktop.
