A newly installed SBS 2008 server functions nicely until a reboot, when it loses its gateway address.  Once this is defined again averything looks fine again.  The assigned static IP and subnet are retained, but the gateway address becomes blank.

    Have you tried running the "Fix my Network Wizard", and I assume you did run the "connect to the internet" wizard, both are located in the Windows SBS console under Network / Connectivity.
