first what operating system are you running?

If XP/2000 (do this on both computers)
1. goto Start -> Run
2. type "cmd" without the quotes and press enter
3. A dos command prompt windows should pop-up.
4. type "ipconfig" without the quotes and press enter
5. make note of the IP Address field
6. type "ping " the ip address of the other computer
      ie: ping 192.168.1.1
7. if you get a reply then the connection to your network is good

Try that first.
