I'm not 100% sure what you are migrating from ....
What i would like to know:

- Did you disable wireless on the laptop and connect the laptop by cable when you try this migration?

Yes I used network cable....the migration is for the windows 7 PC profiles going from a workgroup to a server domain. The Server then takes over the Admin tasks for the PC.
Authentication, updates, backups, access to network folders etc...

Can you try to ping the server ?? try telnet server IP too ......

Try to decrypt one machine and test it out, encryption will have higher security that prevent data transfer.

how about telnet ?? For example, try command like : telnet 192.168.1.3 (server IP)

Make sure you enable the telnet client option under Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off > check the "Telnet client" > restart.

If after trying the command then it just show a black / blank screen, which mean telnet successful, or else it will show error.
