Home Network - one computer doesn't answer a ping-request

Hi, experts out there,
I've installed an US Robotics 8000A Router/DSL Modem, connecting 3 PC's to Internet very fine. The Network ist configured with DHCP, 2 computers are running with win2000 pro (both SP 4), one with win xp. Between one of the w2k computers and the xp machine is communication possible (ping, printer sharing). The other w2k-machine doesn't answer the pings (time out), the printer cannot be shared when connected to this station.
Microsoft client is already installed at all machines, the ip-adresses given by the router are "static".
All computers refer to different domains or are not member of a domain, because two of them are business notebooks from different companies, one is private.
Has anybody an idea why the (private) machine doesn't feel like a member in the home network ?

thanks a lot for good advices.

Hi stoni,

As it doesn't respond to ICMP packages, do you have a firewall installed? Or did you have a firewall installed on that pc in the past?
Either way, try resetting the tcp/ip stack to defaults with the following tool: http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html
