I moved my post to this thread.

Eeek, that's not normal behaviour - and certainly not the 'norm'
You can actually run DHCP on the router and not on ClearOS, as long as the gateway and DNS address it gives out points to your ClearOS IP
I agree, that's why it took me some time before I was able to get my game servers back on-line.
I set it up as follows:
The DNS servers of my router are from my ISP.
The DNS server of my LAN clients is ClearOS.
DNS servers of eth1 are from my ISP. (or should this my modem ... ?!?)
DHCP on ClearOS is enabled.
I know ... it's confusing ...
... but so far I have had no problems, other than that when my modem / router firmware is updated that my eth1 occasionally gets a new ip address ...
... but I learned to live with that.
Even when it means reprogramming the virtual server on my modem / router and that my game servers will not be available on the Internet, until I did this.
I only recently changed my modem firewall to only let true the ports that I use.
Before that I disabled it by creating a virtual server for all ports (1 - 65535) that redirected it's traffic to eth1.
Should I change this setup ... I don't know into what ... ?!?
