    No this isn’t the same. I need to be able to see other workgroups on my network as our admin system is hosted in it’s own workgroup which i need to connect to. I need to access Windows 7’s equivalent of ‘going up one level’ to view ‘microsoft windows networks’

    Hi Chris,

    You will need to enable LLTD through group policy if you wish to enable the network map on windows 7 while it is attached to a domain. Microsoft has it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755075(WS.10).aspx
