That is very odd.  There should be no reason they couldn't both use the same settings.
Could you list exactly what is the difference between your regular PC internet settings
and your ltsp internet settings.  If you could post a copy of what your
/etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf looks like both ways I'm sure one of us could hand you back a
dhcpd.conf that would work for both.  If dhcp is the only thing holding you back this
should be very easy to fix.

If you wanted to quick post network setup as well that would be great.  Something as
simple as:

Internet connected to router, router connected to 24 port switch, all clients and server
plugged into switch.  Server handling dhcp, router internal address
