Make sure you are not loosing the default gateway. There is a known issue of this occurring on SBS 2008 as per:

Assuming the problem is you are loosing the gateway, which is fairly common, you need to install the hotfix and make the registry change. The hotfix will show for Vista. Though it is SBS 2008 compatible a lot of people have reported it will not install. In all of those cases they have tried just making the registry change  (i.e. no hotfix) and it has resolved the problem.
