I just got a new Lenovo Laptop and I'm connected to our company's network. I want to become a member of the domain, so I type in the name of the domain and normally, it will prompt me for an admin login/password to join the domain, but it says it cannot find the domain.

It's strange because I do have an ethernet cable plugged in, and I get an IP address via DHCP, it just won't allow me to join the domain. I've done this for other laptops in our company and countless workstations, so I have no idea what the problem may be. Could it be something in the configuration of the ethernet card?
