I just installed SBS 2008 and trying to setup a client machine on windows 7 and XP. The logon is super slow and there is not internet connection on client computers. I have put in a static IP on client machine with IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS pointing to SBS 2008. I am used to SBS 2003 and do not understand what I am doing wrong. I have ran internet connection wizard in the SBS 2008 box. Help?????

Do you have Active Directory installed on the 2008 server?
If yes then all you need it to set the default gateway in your DHPC scope all your clients will get proper connections, like DNS, Gateway.

If there is no AD, then you need to pay closer attention on your, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS on the router and make sure they are the same on the clients.

I figured out the RWW problem but client problem still is going on. In SBS 2003 you could run the ICW and everything would be figured out for you including internet for clients. Is there a different way of doing it in SBS 2008 besides running "Connect to the Internet wizard" and "Setup and Internet Address"
