I am a little confused; SBS 2008 only needs one NIC card! On my old Sever I had 2x NIC cards on SBS 2003. The question I want to ask is that on SBS 2003 I had to have a accesses point and a router as I could not have an all-in-one router and wireless due to the 2x Nic Cards configuration. As 2008 does not need to NIC can I have the all-in-one unit?

Hello Alex_Jenkins,

yes, you can put a wireless firewall/router in front on the sbs server.

So I dont need to have sperate devices?
Commented:
as long as the dhcp traffic is is 'allowed' by the router/Accesspoint everything is fine.
SBS needs to be the (only) dhcp server.

One last thing why have they chnage the system from 2x NiC to 1X Nic?

Commented:
because SBS 2008 only supports one NIC, you caznnot have two nics on an sbs 2008 server
(and ISA also dissapeared on the premium version)

Commented:
ow, you asked 'why', well, here is some more info:

actually, because they stopped to support isa in the premium version
they advise you to use a seperate appliance for the firewall, which is a good idea in my opinion.
