are your wireless clients on a different subnet?
if you give us the IP address of a wireless client, and the IP address of one of the computer that can not ping the wireless client, and the subnet mask, we can tell if they are on the same subnet.

Can you ping by IP address?

Is the Windows Firewall on anywhere?

and while you are at it, post an IPCONFIG /ALL from the server, a working client, and a non working client

And, what are you using as a WiFi AP?  If a consumer grade, and you plug your LAN into the WAN port, unless you open the ports, you will not be able to reach the WiFi clients...  Probably NAT'd, and as mentioned, on a separate subnet..

I think the problem is on the Wireless Laptop, make sure you do not have any Firewall's on. Because you can ping one way ond not be pinged.
