I need to know the exact set-up that you have and we should be able to fix this one real quick.

The info I am looking for is:

Network card make and model
Network Cable (Coax or Twisted Pair)
OS Version
Number of machines on your network
Network block of IP
Net mask

Any error at bootup?

Get back to me and we should have this one resolved soon.

first check from both machines with ifconfig command that they have ip in same subnet. Then try ping own and another computer ip. If you did not find problem with ifconfig then paste that output to there so we can check it.
