    Most likely a DNS issue. Where is the DNS for the Win7 client pointing to?

    Check firewall for ICMP being blocked on domain and Windows 7 machine.

    unblock windows firewall or disable it. if that doesn't work, join the domain "workgroup", reboot and then join the domain' freddie or whatever it's called" and it should join.
