Server 2008 no internet

I recently joined a 2008 server 64 bit to an sbs 2003 domain  and I can't seem to get the internet to flow. The network connection in the system tray shows that it has internet access but if I try to ping a public IP or browse the web I get no where. I have updated NIC drivers as far as I can tell. Anyone have an idea of what could be causing this? I can ping internal network and access the server via rdp on the internal network.
Thanks,

Jeff

I figured out that their was a problem with our router and it was causing issues with IPV6

SBS 2003 can have 2 network configurations:
1. Typical with a single NIC and all machines point to the router as the internet gateway
2. Two NIC's and the SBS acts as the gateway for the network such that all machines must point to the LAN IP of the SBS as their gateway, not the router

Is the 2008 gateway configured appropriately?
Also the public IP you are trying to ping, are you sure it accepts pings?  If in doubt 8.8.8.8 should work (Google DNS)

This is what I get when  I ping google.
C:\Users\jchorba>ping 8.8.8.8

Pinging 8.8.8.8 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 8.8.8.8: bytes=32 time=182ms TTL=57
Request timed out.
Reply from 192.168.114.1: Destination host unreachable.
Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 8.8.8.8:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 2, Lost = 2 (50% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 182ms, Maximum = 182ms, Average = 182ms
I have firewalls turned off.

SBS has one nic and all the other workstations on the network have no issues. gateway is correct.

does     tracert 8.8.8.8    provide any information as to where in the path it is failing.

One other though is many business class routers have Internet access License limits.  For example a base Cisco will only allow 10 Internet connections, others 25, 50, and unlimited.  When an 11th tries to connect it is blocked.  Additional licenses have to be purchased and added.
On many of these routers record the MAC address and reserve access for that device, whether connected at this time or not.  Rebooting the router resets the license counter.

What are 192.168.115.1 & 192.168.114.2?  A router and a modem/router?  Make and model?

192.168.115.1 is the router hooked to a t1
I honestly don't know where it is pulling the 192.168.114.2

The router is a Sonic Wall - I don't have the model handy

Can other devices get to the internet?

Most Sonicwalls have license limits, but looks like it's getting to next hop.

Yes, other devices can get on the Internet

I assume 192.168.115.1 is the Sonicwall?  If so have you tried rebooting it and try again before other devices claim licenses?

Is the SBS configuration the same?

By the way on the Server 2008 you do not want 8.8.8.8 as a DNS server.  Only use the SBS's IP or you will have a lot of issues.  However if pinging by IP that is not related to your primary problem.
