can you ping both ways? Remove all the network components from the problem pc, reboot and reload them. Configure the network settings again.
Let me know how this works

WindowsME is another unfinished product of Microsoft. Check to see on both PCs if your registry key is set for the network. Go to:
regedit at the dos command prompt. Point to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\VNETBIOS. Makesure you have these 3 keys. NetClean 01, Start 00, StaticVxD vnetbios.vxd
Then you'll have to download a patch from Microsoft named (272991.usa). Then try the following settings:
Setup for home network is as follows:
Windows ME computer #1//
Network neighborhood
Client for Microsoft Networks--Quick logon
your Adapter--Bindings=both
Netbieu
TCP/IP--Specify address;192.168.0.2 Mask 255.255.255.0
File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks
Primary Network Logon--Client for MS Networks
Windows ME computer #2//
Network neighborhood
Client for MS Networks--Quick logon
your adapter--Bindings=both
Netbieu
TCP/IP--Specify address;192.168.0.1 Mask 255.255.255.0
File and printersharing for MS Networks
Primary network logon--Client for MS Networks

Don't forget to restart machines after making changes. It will probably take few minutes for each machine to see other in MyNetworkPlaces.
