Why can't my new server SBS 2008 connect to the Internet when my old server (W2k) can?

I have an old W2k server running perfectly.
I shutdown the old server.
I installed a new server running SBS 2008.

Every setting on the new server was the same as the old server.  (IP address, DHCP, DNS, etc.)

The new server cannot connect to the internet (but a client computer can).
I ran nslookup to see if the new server can resolve ip addresses and it can.

Sidenote:  The Dell tech could webex into the client computer successfully.  However, when he tried to connect to the sbs server via Remote Desktop Connection, the process failed.  

Your help is greatly appreciated.
