Im trying to connect to a sbs server 2003 .I succeed to connect through a hub that is connected to one of the network cards on the server ,but when i try to connect through the WI-FI connection which is connected to the external network card it does not work .I have a router connected on the external card and a hub on the internal card.I guess the fact the server is controlling the network connections it does not allow me to connect .Any suggestions please let me know
my setup is :

internet ---- wireless router----server----hub ---- lan


when i connect to the hub it works when i connect to the wireless router it does not i guess cause its connected afteer the server.

How are the users getting their IP address and info on the wireless, from the router?
When the client machines use the wifi connection, how are you telling them the route their traffic needs to take to get back to the SBS server and then onto the internal LAN?

No, you wouldn't want to plug a cable between the router and the hub, you'd have a routing loop and all sorts of troubles doing that.

Are you running ISA server on the SBS box?
