Anyone have any ideas how to get past this? I dont want to enable DHCP, but in order to complete the Connect to the Internet wizard, its insisting that I disable it.  Thoughts?

SBS 2011 needs to be the DHCP server on your network and won't work without it.  You need to let it manage DHCP for you not another device.

Agreeing with Alan, and additionally asking why you would not want to use the built in DHCP server?

the cisco router we use manages the dhcp for the IP phones on the network too, so it would be easier to let it keep managing the dhcp than to change it all out...

Then you will need to isolate the Cisco router from the SBS server by using a Managed Switch or another router inbetween the SBS server and the Cisco router so that they are on separate networks.

My experience with two customers now is that it's better to have two separate internet connections, one for phone, one for internet...Broadband is getting really cheap, at least in this area

But to your original question, Sean Daniels, of the Microsoft Product Team, has written an excellent article on why you really should run DHCP on the SBS Server.  The article was written for SBS 2008 but applies to SBS 2011 as well.  You can find it here   http://sbs.seandaniel.com/2008/10/do-i-absolutely-have-to-run-dhcp-on-sbs.html    and it explains how to configure things if you absolutely can't run DHCP on the Server.

You could run SBS Essentials - it is happy to use the router's DHCP - and move your email to Office 365
