Windows Server 2008 R2 - show local and internet access but not Internet


We are running SBS 2008 and one member server - windows 2008 R2. Suddenly the member server became available only from the local network. I can do remote desktop to it, from the SBS - it show local and internet access, it is visible by the local workstations, but cannot ping or open any website from the internet. It has static IP addresses. Any ideas, please ?

Hello  smckeown777,

Thanks for the tip. The gateway is the same. Tracing the Google dns showed me that the router does allow the connection. Simple reboot fixed the issue. Thanks.
