Google your Mac and Ethernet problems and you will have lots to read.
Yep. I read, literally, every one of those threads and did everything recommended. But the problem isn't the Mac. The problem is the server. As soon as i reboot the server everything works perfectly. I don't even have to log out on my Mac, it's instantly ok.

I have seen where someone setup a server and did not realize that it was broadcasting and responding to DHCP requests. May not apply here, but thought I would mention since this is something I have run across before.
I'm pretty sure it would be the router. I don't recall setting up DHCP on the server at all. Server, Mac, and router all use static ip's. And the router handles dhcp for wifi.

Will do that when I get home. What's rip?
