MacBook and PC can't ping each other?
Posted on 2014-08-10
So, this is odd... I have a windows laptop and a macbook that are on the same wireless router. They should be able to ping each other, right? I look at the network properties and both can ping the same "default gateway" but don't get a response when I try to ping the other from either one.
I look at the routing table on my wireless router and confirm that both are connected at the expected IP addresses.
I checked that the firewall is turned off on the MacBook, but don't know what else to check. Anything else I should check?
Ultimately I'm trying to establish a TCP connection between the two, but I figure if I can't ping then I probably won't be able to do that either.
Thanks for any thoughts.
