  1. what version of Windows7 are you using? Home
  2. If you're using Win7 Pro and above it is more than likely a DNS issue, make sure your DNS server is running, if the server's firewall is running make sure it's in domain mode (it should be if you have dcpromo'd the server) and that your client has all the correct info in its IP configuration.

    Generally peer-to-peer is regarded as a decentralised topology where as domains are centralised, are you sure you using the correct terminology here?
