Is the problem workstation using DHCP from the network to get its IP Address?  What is the IP of the DHCP server?  Can the workstation ping the server by it's name?

Yes I am using DHCP from my domain controller to assign IP addresses.  The IP of the domain server is 192.168.1.55.  I cannot ping by name or IP address.  I went into the network and sharing center and it says that I am connected to a public network.  I cannot find any way to unjoin it from the public network and join it to the domain network.  The NIC in the task area states "no internet access".

I have another PC inwhich the NIC is stating limited or no network connectivity.  Not sure if this is related.

On the Win7 machine run "ipconfig /all" from a command prompt and post what it returns.  Have you checked to make sure the settings on the NIC are set to auto obtain for both IP and DNS?

Try running an "ipconfig /all" on the machines.  The limited or no connectivity normallly indicates trouble with getting settings from DHCP.

If that doesn't work, you may want to restart your DHCP server/service.  Once it clears up, try joining the PC to the domain.  When you have the proper settings from DHCP and the correct DNS.  It normally is a snap!
