How can I change the domain type from work network to domain type?  Some of my users are showing work network rather than domain network.  We are using OS Windows 7.

You should be able to unjoin, restart and join and that will fix the network type.

If the above don't work, just add the DNS Suffix to your DHCP scopes if not done so already (I also recommend running Best Practice Analyzer for DHCP & DNS roles). This means that any system obtaining a DHCP, which has that DNS Suffix assigned would get the domain network assigned.
You can also manually set the suffix on your NIC if all else fails and you just want to band-aid it under TCP/IP4 Advanced Settings>>DNS.

John Hurst >   Rejoining the domain worked.  What would cause the computer to lose the domain network  and use the work network?

That is hard to say. Domain uses the Network Settings, and unjoin also uses the network settings. Something went wrong there. Disjoin / Rejoin is an easy step so that is what I do rather the spend additional time on network settings that may or may not be fruitful.
