Cannot add Dell laptop E1505 vista business to SBS 2003 ; get network adapter error

I am trying to run the network configuration wizard (http:\\server\connectcomputer) but it errors out reporting that: "Make sure that only one adapter is enabled and that it is connected to the small business server"
I have disabled the wireless adapter; here is an output from IPCONFIG/ALL:

I'd go a bit further than that.  Since "Local Area Connection 2" is the adapter that is in use and has leased an address, you should disable "Local Area Connection."  (Right-click on it and select Disable.)  I'd also disable IPv6 (uncheck it in Local Area Connection 2's properties page) unless you're currently using it on your network.

I have already disabled IPv6...did not make any difference, but still left it disabled

With regards to Connection 7, the MS tunnel adapter, this does not show up as a connection like the others do, where you can simply right click and disabled it; I think this is the core issue but I cannot find this connection; In my experience, laptops have had the extra things like wireless, bridges, and firewire...which can be found and disabled...at least in XP Pro they have.

Did you disable Local Area Connection (the one using the integrated Broadcom)?
