Hallo

Did you try to change the Network Adapter Priority:

You must have Local Area Connections before Wireless...
If 192.168.1.1 is PC-99 what is your Router IP?

but is this correct?
 192.168.1.1      PC-99

has your computer named PC-99 IP address 192.168.1.1? BEcause firtsly you have to ensure PC-99 have that IP and then you can add record for this in your host table.
So make IP for PC-99 static (manually enter IP settings or what is BETTER make IP reservation (based on MAC address) on your router) - then you can add this into your hosts table.

For more detailed answers please provide:
what is your routerĀ“s IP (the same IP should be default gateway)
what is PC-99 actual IP (run command ipconfig on PC-99)
do you have the same subnet for LAN and wifi? (when connected to LAN and wifi both give you 192.168.1.x)

Did you see the link I posted? There you have step by step instructions.
I also can't believe (as we both mentioned) that 192.168.1.1 is the correct IP.

If you want PC-54 to report 192.168.1.1 you need this in hosts:
192.168.1.1      PC-54

You have PC-99 in hosts then ping PC-54. It does not have a match in hosts file so it will use the real address.

Note that this will probably cause weird problems with your network connection.

HTH,
