I am able to ping everything on my network from my laptop EXCEPT for that computer. I believe I am using workgroup setup and yes the new computer is in the same workgroup. There's only about a dozen devices in this network so I'm fairly confident there are no computers with repeated names. My father is an network admin and he has suggested setting up a domain several times but I still have no idea what that is or if it will help, and I haven't really had time to research it all that much.

As for the bridge between the wireless and LAN, I am looking in the internet-based control panel and I do not see anything that jumps out at me as what you're talking about. Could it be called something different and I'm missing it?
