We have a SBS2003 server and are about to remove the on site router from service.  We will be using SBS server to route traffic.  Is there any recommendations you have prior to implementation?  We do not have Forefront, and are using Symantec Endpoint Protection, Small Business Edition.  Not sure if it makes a difference, but we have the option to upgrade to Enterprise version of SEP.  
Connections will go from Cable modem, to SBS server, to Cisco switch, to LAN.

The only way I would recommend to have SBS 2003 as a router would be if you have the Premium version with ISA 2004 installed.  Otherwise, keep a router in front if it and only have one NIC enabled.
