Can Not Connect to Workgroup

By kevin.hamlin ·
I've got a home network with 3 computers. 2 Desktops and 1 laptop. The desktops are wired and the laptop is wireless. 1 of the pcs and the laptop work fine on the network. I can see the other desktop in the workgroup, but I can not access it. I can not ping it, but it can ping all other computers on the network

I have 2 network cards installed, but disabled one.

Windows firewalls are off
I tryed releasing and renewing the ip on this desktop
IDCMP setting allow incoming echo requests

Do you have install any antivirus application at these pc? Try remove or disable it. You should can ping the pc and access it.

I would physically remove 1 network card from the machine not working. Some machine sjust dont like dual-home even when one is disabled. Other then that I assume you checked to see that it was set for dhcp, and or had correct network address, gateway? Checked to see that it was pluged into correct network card?
