SBS 2003 SP2, has been running for several years, no ISA. Using one NIC - Linux box is the firewall. Lost Internet connectivity this weekend, not sure why or exactly when. I run the Internet Connection wizard gives me an "error occured while configurin a component" during the firewall configuration.  Thought perhaps an issue with the Linux box so enabled second nic in server, re-ran wizard and entered those settings, I believe settings are correct but the wizard gets same error on the firewall configuration.
Ran SFC /SCANNOW, no love.
Uninstalled and reinstalled SBS administrative tools, said some files that were overwritten were newer, had me restart. The wizard would not run at all so reinstalled SP2 and restarted.
All services set to automatic are started.
Still get this error and no Internet. I've attached the ICW log, I couldn't tell anything from it.

The wizard may fail on the firewall element but just run it again and you may find it completes happily.

I ran it many, many times. I ended up calling calling Microsoft. There was some corruption in the networking components as well as a dns problem, took them 4 hours to fix.
