How to see other computer on Domain Network using Windows 7 client?

I have clients with Windows 7 Pro (64bit) on the domain and when I browse the network there are no machines listed. With an XP client all machines are listed, except for the same Windows 7 clients, when you browse the network. WHat's wrong with my Windows 7 Pro client??

dns must have updated... next time it happens do an ipconfig /release , ipconfig /flushdns , ipconfig /renew (might have to do part 2 after part 3)

1. Open Advanced sharing settings by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then, in the left pane, click Change advanced sharing settings.

2. Click the chevron to expand your current network profile.

3. Click Turn on network discovery, and then click Save changes.  If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation

Under Windows 7 you need to enable Sharing Profiles options to see and be seen with the default windows network browser.

To change these settings you need to go to:
Network Connection and Sharing Center --> then Advanced Sharing settings.  On that screen you would want to enable Network Discovery for the current active profile.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Netwokr Discovery is already enabled and I still cannot see the network servers/clients.

They also have to have to have sharing enabled and most of all not be marked as in a 'public' network

Sharing is enabled, what do you mean "not be marked as in a public network"???

In network and sharing center you will see if the network connection is set as HOME, WORK or PUBLIC, you cannot have it say public or it won't work. Everytime you plug your computer into a new network it asks you what you want to classify the network and list the same three option.

Also, if you are on a domain network mapping may be disabled, in network and sharing click the button that says "see full map" it will tell you if network mapping is enabled or disabled.

It only has "domain". Mapping is disabled. It says to enable it with group policy. Is there a way to do it without group policy??

I enabled Mapping and still nothing.

All Windows 7 clients cannot see other computer on the network when you browse the network. All clients are part of a Domain. Windows XP clients CAN see all clients when browsing the network.
