I am having the same issue as in this link http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_24731237.html

That has two links in it that apply to my situation http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2009/02/12/you-may-lose-network-connectivity-on-sbs-2008-when-using-a-driver-which-utilizes-tdi.aspx

http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=961775&kbln=en-us

The problem is the hotfix is only for Vista. I need to apply this to a few SBS 2008 servers. I tried the vista 64 bit but it won't run on the SBS server.

As noted at the second link, Vista version should work on sbs 2008.
Are you also using trendmicro AV? Have you tried to disable FW on AV?

I saw where it says it works with SBS 2008 but it doesn't. I get a message saying the hotfix is not for my OS. I am using Trend Micro on all the servers. The Firewall in Trend is not enabled

This hotfix was rolled into Windows Server 2008 SP2.
As you'll note, the official KB article is 961775. If you go to the SP2 release notes here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd335033(WS.10).aspx
This article links to an excel spreadsheet with all included hotfixes in SP2. The spreadsheet is organized by category, not by KB number, so you have to scroll down a bit, but in the "hotfix/networking" category, you will see 961775 listed. Line 609 of the spreadsheet.
In short, install Windows 2008 SP2 on your SBS box and you already have this hotfix.

I didn't realize SP2 was not installed. I would run Windows updates and it always said it was updated.

Thanks
