Xp can't ping ANYTHING, but Internet works !?

I've just set up a home network to share a cable modem using a D-Link router. I've got 2 Pc's (1) brand new running XP and (2) 4 years old running Win98. Everything installed just fine, both PC's are happily cruising the internet just fine.

When I tried to set up file sharing though, From the XP machine, I can see both PC's, but tells me the Win98 PC is not connected to the network (?). From the Win98 PC, it won't even see the XP machine at all.

After spending 1/2 day troubleshooting, I have found that I cannot PING anything from the XP machine. It WILL do a PING Localhost with good results, but it will not ping it's OWN IP address, nor the D-Link router, nor the other machine or any other known IP address I give it.

Internet connection is doing great. FTP works great, so basically I have what I need, but I cannot get to the Win98 machine, and I should be able to PING SOMETHING right? The Win98 machine pings itself, known IP's, and the D-Link fine, but cannot ping the XP machine.

I've tried dynamic and static IP's, but it doesn't make any difference.

Any ideas what I've got wrong here?

Nope, I disabled the firewall completely and it had no effect on the problem.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yeah! The Microsoft article hit the problem right on the money.

I had ZoneAlarm installed. I had disabled it in MSCONFIG so it wouldn't start up at boot, thinking that that would keep it from interfering with the network, but I was wrong.

I uninstalled ZoneAlarm, rebooted, and wallah! Instant connectivity!

Thanks!
