on each of the machines...
start, run, msinfo32, note the system name

then start, run, cmd and attempt to ping the other machine by it's name

in the cmd window type: ping computername then hit enter.
replace computername with the system name of the other computer as u noted above

if it replies u have connectivity.

if not attempt to ping it by it's ip address.

using the same cmd window type ipconfig and hit enter.

this will give u the ip address of the machine.

then attempt to ping that address from the other machine.
