I have a Windows 7 client joined to the SBS 2008 server. I can't authenticate to the domain but can log with a local unsername.

When I go to Network and Sharing Center I don't see the basic network information. I have this

Any ideas why?

first question... is your network card running and using the latest drivers?

second question... if this is the case, click start and type services.msc then press enter.
A new window will open.
Scroll down these list of "services" until you find, Network Location Awareness.
The status of this should be Started and the Startup Type should be Automatic.

Double click on Network Location Awareness, to change these if they are different.

I don't think that service should cause you any issues logging on.....

Seeing as how you are "unknown", can you at least verify you have an IP?

Can you ping yourself?

Can you ping the SBS?

Can you ping externally?

Tried another switch port/cable?

Is this a New PC, and if not, I am assuming it has worked before?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Yes I have an IP and I can connect to the internet when logged on as a local administrator
Can you ping yourself? Yes

Can you ping the SBS? Yes but I can't ping the client from SBS

Can you ping externally? Yes I can ping Google

Tried another switch port/cable? Not yet

6 Month old PC and yes it was working up until recently
