Just setup a new SBS2011 server. Converted over all clients. They can connect to the internet. One user just got a new Laptop, not joined to the domain yet. But cannot connect to the internet wireless or wired, but can ping the internal network wired. I used my laptop which is not part of the domain and I can connect to the internet via the wireless network but when I plug into the ethernet cable I can't access the internet but can ping internal network. Need help ASAP. Can't understand what's happening.

Have yoy tried disabling the windows firewall :-) On the laptop try running a tracert to google.com it should run and tell you where your packets are failing.

DNS may not allow annonyms.  Can it resolve google.com in a ping?

are you authenticating to the domain? I presume you mean your network firewall where the tracert is stopping? if so, join the laptop to the domain as your firewall will be blocking non authenticated traffic

Ok, I found the problem. Firewall needed to be reset.
