cannot ping one pc from my router

By hai.spam ·
I have a linksys router and have several computers connected to it via wireless. On one PC, I can ping to the router, get on to the internet but for some reason, I cannot ping to the PC from my router. I turned off all the software firewall. I think the windows firewall is turned off. It's set at NOT MONITORED.

If you cannot do a reverse ping, the firewall is active and blocking the ping from your router.

Also, if you have any software (Zone alarm or Norton), check to ensure that software is not running a firewall block as well.

thanks for the reply but I did turn off my software firewall. I use EZ firewall and turned it off and rebooted the PC.
