home network problem with MAC and Windows PCs
Posted on 2007-11-22
I'm working on a simple home network setup thru a netgear router. Two of the PCs are running XP Home Edition and the 3rd PC is running OS X 10.4.10.
I can ping the router from each Windows PC and I can also ping the IP address for the MacIntosh from each Windows PC. However, I cannot ping the Windows PCs thru the network? Something is blocking access to the Windows PCs, which I think has something to do with the MacIntosh or the router????
I'm not a MAC guy and not sure how to troubleshoot this.
Can anyone offer some ideas on how to troubleshoot this home network issue?
Please let me know what additional information I can provide?
Thanks for any help.
