...and therefore I can't connect to windowsupdate.microsoft.com.

Have I missed something during the install? I'm sure I've read something previously about this being expected after installing 2003 R2, but I can't remember what.

By default, the firewall is on.  

See if that's the case.  You may also need Forwarders to your ISP in your DNS.

Do you have DNS setup correctly on the box?
Can you ping other Machines by IP address within your network?

looks like it was a DNS problem that's now resolved itself, but I can't be utterly sure. Its just started working after I changed the primary DNS address for the NICs.
