Please give more info about "workgroup", did you mean to say workstation (assuming its in a domain) or do you mean workstation that's in a workgroup?

Sounds like a DNS issue.

sounds like DNS, type ipconfig /registerdns on the workstation and see if it works after, you may have to wait 15 minutes.

Before running ipconfig /registerdns run ipconfig /flushdns to clear the resolver cache.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

all workstations slow or just one? Could reset the switch to eliminate but usually a switch indicates more than one workstation having issues.

Run ipconfig /flushdns on the server as well.  

On the server run the "Connect to Internet" wizard, SBS loves the wizards.

Agree with DNS.  Make sure the workstation points ONLY to the SBS for DNS.  If the router or an ISP's IP is present as a DNS server,  even as an alternate, you will have this issue.

do ipconfig /all from the workstation and post the results, wouldn't hurt to do so from the server as well
