The PC isnt on the network. Make sure it has a proper IP on the network. Once its truly on the network youll be able to ping it.

You should have different IP addresses for each. The subnet mask should be the same. Try IP: 192.168.0.1 through 192.168.0.254, subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

If you cant ping the PC, its not on the network. Perhaps it's having ethernet issues? Bad cable etc?
