    Unable to Ping a laptop

    I have a desktop and laptop connected to a wireless router/switch via Ethernet cables
    I can Ping the desktop from the laptop but I can't Ping the laptop from the desktop - the requests timeout, multiple attempts including after rebooting.
    IPCONFIG shows that the laptop is connected to the Lan as well as WiFi

    Probably your firewall rejecting the ping request.

    cheers, Paul

    Yes, I just figured that out and temporarily shutdown the firewall. Solved the ping issue
