WIRELESS SBS 2008

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?

as long as the dhcp traffic is is 'allowed' by the router/Accesspoint everything is fine.
SBS needs to be the (only) dhcp server.

Hello Alex_Jenkins,

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

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)

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.
