Thanks for your post and Larry's suggestion.
In addition to SBS 2008 BPA that you should run first, I also would like
suggest you double check your network topology, check the local IP address on
the server, use a static Internet IP addresses. If the issue persists, please
rerun the Connect to the Internet Wizard (CTIW) again.
Changing the local IP address on the server:
During installation Windows SBS 2008 searches for a router. If it finds a
router that has a valid IP address, Setup configures the local network
adapter on the server with a static IP address in the same range as the
router. For example, if the router's internal network port IP address is
192.168.1.1, then the server's IP address is 192.168.1.2. All network-related
services are set up to use IP addresses in the same range.
If you must change the static IP address on the server to a new subnet for
any reason, you must also change the static IP address on the internal
network port on the router, and then run the Fix My Network Wizard to ensure
that all network services use the new IP address range.
During Windows SBS 2008 installation, a static Internet Protocol version 6
(IPv6) address is automatically configured on the server. Because many
applications are programmed to use IPv4, Windows SBS 2008 runs IPv4 and IPv6
on the same network, either wired or wireless. Windows SBS 2008 also
configures DHCP and DNS for IPv6. For the server to use IPv6 to reach the
Internet, you must have a stateless, autoconfigured IPv6 router connecting
your local network to the Internet.
