Reinstall.

Why do you want to do that??

I am a newbie at SBS and am having difficulty with my network.  I setup SBS at home and joined a computer and a laptop via a router (Linksys WRT54G).  These worked for a week or so and then they started not connecting to the server, first the computer and then the laptop.  I tried renaming the computers and recreating their links to the server but all attempts have failed so I am at my wits end.  I thought if I could reset all my configurations then I could try again.

Well, if you want to reset, then reformat your hard drive and reinstall the Operating System.  (sorry, but that's the only way).

Alternatively, you can rerun any of the items on the To-Do list as needed.

But I am confused about what you describe as "recreating their links to the server"??  What do you mean by this?

I mean I renamed the computers and created new users and tried to connect using those and I still couldn't connect.

You'll still have to provide greater detail here...

when you say "couldn't connect"  what was the specific error?    
Is the SBS providing DHCP?
Do you have the Workstations configured with DHCP?
Are you logging on to the workstations with that computers local administrator account?

P. S.  Please post a complete IPCONFIG /ALL from your SBS so that we can review your configuration to make sure that it's correct.

Well I got impatient and reinstalled the O/S.  I know this wasn't the right thing to do.  I should have stuck with it and troubleshooted it out to better myself but I am going out of town and don't too much time right now.
