netsh firewall show state displays the following lines:


Firewall status:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Profile = Domain
Operational mode = Disable
Exception mode = Enable
Multicast/broadcast response mode = Enable
Notification mode = Enable
Group policy version = None
Remote admin mode = Disable

Ports currently open on all network interfaces:
Port Protocol Version Program
-------------------------------------------------------------------
137 UDP IPv4 (null)
139 TCP IPv4 (null)
138 UDP IPv4 (null)
3389 TCP IPv4 (null)
445 TCP IPv4 (null)

netsh firewall show icmpsetting displays a blank screen, is that
normal?

Doesn't look like your firewall is the issue. Operational mode = disable
means it's disabled for all interfaces. Also there is an explicit rule
to open the RDP port 3389, which would be effective if the firewal was
enabled; this also suggests you have enabled Remote Desktop access.

Did you verify there is a TCP port 3389 in a listen state using netstat -a?

Yes, that's normal if you don't have any rules configured for the ICMP
protocol.

What's the response you get when the ping fails?

Is it 'request timed out', 'destination host unreachable' or something
else?

Another thing you might like to try:
from the command line on a machine your pinging from, type

arp -a

Check there is an entry for your laptop's IP address.
