Hi pboter,

          Turn the windows firewall of other computer off. Make sure that wireless client can acquire IP address and is pingable from other computers

what's the goal you are going for pboter as turning off the firewall I would recommend against.

if you just want to see if you have connectivity between the two and since you're on the same segment, run your ping again. then run this:
arp -a

There should be an entry for the IP you were trying to ping and its mac address.  if yes, you have connectivity (you know what I mean by connectivity too I hope), if no then you have a network issue.

unless MrHusy meant only for during testing to turn it off which I assume he did, but I still like my way better ;)

During trouble shooting, turn off firewall is thing should do, we could turn it on whenever we wanted, that is my opinion. Also, turn off every security features that could be help while trouble shooting.
