Hi, jweineril. Can you elaborate on "My local area network is set up as a domain"? Do you have a Server 2003 or Server 2008 Domain Controller running? Are you using your laptop that was given to you by your company? When you said this, do you really mean that you simply chose "this computer is a member of xxxx domain"???? as opposed to a workgroup or a homegroup?

Netbooks can't be added to a domain, unfortunately. They can use simple file sharing, but they cannot be members of a domain.

What level of priveledges do you have within the domain, and what do you know about it's configuration? I would guess that the Administrator (if it isn't you) has locked down users ability to do ICS just to cut out the risk that unwanted parties will gain access to your network.

p.s: Norwood, It's windows starter and windows home that cannot be joined to domains. Not netbooks. A netbook running Professional or Ultimate can be added to a domain.
