Network, internet - Trying to join to a domain with Windows 7 Home Premium

We purchased two Dell computers today with Windows 7 home premium, they will not allow us access to our network.  Will not allow a domain name.  Is there an upgrade to perform this function?


You need Windows 7 Pro, or Ultimate,or Enterprise to join a Domain.


Check with Dell, since is new may be they offer you a reasonable solution.


Windows 7 features compare,
