The most common problem would be the Windows, or another software firewall blocking it on computer A, such as Symantec, Zone Alarm, McAfee or other. To disable the Windows firewall open Windows Firewall in the control panel and set to off.

most likely you either have a subnet mask problem from what i see, give me some more details on your network settings, but chgeck to make sure both are the same subnet mask 255.255.255.0 is the most common home and sml med office setups.

Enjoy,

What OS is on the computers?
For Windows 2000 you need a local account with the same name as one that is logged in on the other PC.
Eg PC A is running Win XP and has user ID: Fred
PC B is running Win 2K and has user ID: Barney
PC B will need a local account called Fred for access to function correctly.
