Are the other devices connected to the same router on the network? Maybe check if they have the Windows Firewall on as that sometimes stop ICMP requests and therefore you cannot ping them. Try it again but turn off the Windows Firewall on the machines you're trying to ping.

Can you also not ping by hostname or IP?

Agree with Roshan's suggestion to turn off firewalls on the other system(s) and then try pinging again.  By default, nearly all firewalls including the windows firewall block ICMP (ping) requests.  If you can ping successfully after turning off the firewall, then post back confirming that and we can get you setup with a simple exclusion on your firewall to allowing pinging while it  is on.

Agreed but also verify the network type for this connection if you picked or it picked public by default it will block that access via the firewall

If you haven't already, you should configure an exclusion on your workstations for ICMP receive so that you can ping them in the future without having to disable the firewall.  You can set the scope of the exclusion to just be your local subnet for added security.

Glad you got it sorted out.
