After running connect wizard with a wired connection; domain client computers can access sbs08 network fine over the wire, but then we connect wirelessly we get internet, but no internal servers or services.
Access Rules are set properly on Sonicwall NSA2400 to allow all wireless traffic on the WLAN interface to the WAN interface.

What if you manually  set primary DNS to server on the wireless card?
Can you ping the server while using the Wireless NIC?

Also make sure your access point uses SBS for primary DNS.

The sonic wall WAS using the old DNS server which was down.  It then sent us to the ISP DNS server, we changed it and have internal web site that loads.   We can send email out of network, but not getting email from outside the network yet.  There may be other issues such as there is not really a port forwarding option in the Sonicwall...checking.

Run the "Fix my Network wizard" under Networking in the console.
Also run the SBS BPA. It will make you aware of most common problems.
