Usual first question is what is providing DHCP on the network, and second is
for you to post up the results of:
ipconfig /all > C:\iptest.txt
from both the server and a workstation, and please tell us which is which.
No need to munge anything, but you can change the domain name and the server
name if you must.
I have seen SBS servers get 10K spams per day, without noticeable effect on
the internet speed, but this may be a function of total bandwidth.
Please post the resolution to your
issue so that others may benefit.
