computer not getting on network

by mrstooie / June 22, 2005 6:55 AM PDT

Linksys wireless network. 2 desktops, XP home edition with sp2. Both access internet. A sees B but B doesn't see A. B can ping A, but can't ping itself. All correct protocals installed. No hardware conflicts. Both assigned to same network.

The fact that B can't get on network but can ping A must mean something.

Any help appreciated.
