Usually the routers and subnet-mask options go in the subnet block 
rather than the host blocks because they are more related to the 
properties of the entire subnet and would be the same for all hosts in 
that subnet.  They should work in the host blocks in any case--it is 
just a bit unusual to configure them there.

I notice that your router is not in the same subnet as the client.  
That is probably a misconfiguration.  The router should probably be or similar.  Maybe this is why your clients are rejecting 
the offers.
