No - in a word!

You are better off letting a server handle DHCP, rather than a router as you have greater control and with SBS, you MUST use DHCP on the server or it won't be happy.

Okay but the SBS box is virtual and don't see how I can achieve this!

Not really a good idea to move DHCP to your router unless you have a good reason to do it. Contrary to what Alan says, SBS will still run OK if you move the DHCP role off it but I wouldn't move the role to a router, only another server.

DHCP is installed with SBS by default. What exact issues are you having here?

To access the DHCP server console, click on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > open DHCP

Here is a very good write-up / read about SBS 2008 and DHCP and the reasons why you should run it on the SBS server and not a router:

If you want to remove it from the SBS server, it also shows you how and how to make SBS happy.

Personally I would leave it running on the server.
