Hello,

Please check the TCP/IP settings.

Have you set the proper DNS in TCP/IP client on windows 7 computer.

This may help you.

Make sure only one  hardwired Network adapter is active (disable ALL other ones)  before running the wizard.
Also add the server DNS IP address for primary in TCP/ IP settings.
For testing reasons: In elevated prompt: Do you get a response when you nslookup "your server's IP address"?
Hope that helps,
Olaf
