    Setting up a new network.
    subnet netmask {
    interface eth1;
    option broadcast-address;
    option subnet-mask;
    option routers;
    option domain-name-servers;
    default-lease-time 900;
    max-lease-time 7200;
    clients getting an ip.
    It works ok when they receive an 10.0.0.x address. When they receive for example an 10.0.1.x address the pc can't go to internet.

    Can you tell me how to solve this problem?

    When the device has a 10.0.1.x address, can you ICMP ping with it?
    (check with tcpdump if ICMP ping reaches the router)

    Does your router have the correct netmask settings? The settings of the dhcp server seem correct, maybe you mistyped something on the router?

    If you can ICMP ping the router, maybe you've firewalled some stuff?

    thanks for your reply.
    I cannot ping from 10.0.1.x address. No firewall active yet ...

    Ok, but do you see any incoming packets at all with tcpdump ?

    gateway/router is same machine as dhcpserver (for test @the moment)

    problem found:
    no route on router for the network.
    solved it for now wit:
    route add -net netmask gw
    how to add this automatically?

    That should actually be:
    route add -net netmask gw
    that should tell the router "ok, everything in the range ( up to should be send to"

    If you have your network settings correctly setup on your router, this route should already be there.

    see: route -n
