Thanx for the help far.
Here's IPCONFIG

ZoneAlarm automatically prompts you when a new network is detected.
Both computers are running ZoneAlarm and have allowed all IP
Addresses
from 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.10 trusted access.

With these changes I no longer get a response when I ping one PC from
another.

Why do you have two routers with two subnets?

Is there some reason that you connected the Actiontec to PC2 using USB
instead of Ethernet (other than that's how Verizon did it)? [BTW, what
model router do you have? According to the Verizon FiOS info page I
found (http://tinyurl.com/2y8u73), the only Verizon Actiontec wireless
router is the MI424WR, which has no USB connection).]

Is there anything connected to the Ethernet NIC in PC2?

Similarly, why are you using static (manually set) IP addresses? If the
Actiontec is using 192.168.1.x (as the manual at the linked page says),
then the IPs you set ought to be OK, but if you had set the computers to
"obtain an IP address automatically," you wouldn't have to worry that
your router might be in a different subnet.

Try disconnecting the USB cable between the Actiontec and PC2 and
instead use [only] an Ethernet cable to connect PC2 to the router.
Reboot.

I did not have statically assinged IP addresses,
Verizon technician set both PC's up to have
an IP addresss assigned automatically.
After posting my problem on this user group,
one of you sent me an email to assign the addresses
you see as the output of ipconfig /all.

When I click on My Network Places and then
Computers Near Me, I don't see the other computer anymore.

I don't know why I have two
routers with two subnets - that's how the Verizon technician set it up
-
and Verizon is no longer taking my calls.

I do have the Actiontec MI424WR,
but there is no USB connection.

Signed,

Stumped.

I don't know why "Jim" asked "Why do you have two routers with two
subnets?" As near as I can tell from what you've written, you have only
one router, the Actiontec MI424WR. You *used* to have a Linksys router,
but you are no longer using that. Is that correct?

Today you say "there is no USB connection." But on 1/20, you prefaced
the listing for the ipconfig /all output from your 2nd PC with the
statement:
"PC with usb cable attached to Actiontec Router from Verizon"

Furthermore, the ipconfig information for the 2nd PC indicates a USB
network connection (Microsoft RNDIS virtual adapter miniport).

So what's going on? What is the USB cable attached to (at both ends)?

You have to remember that no one reading this newsgroup can see your
system and how things are connected. All we have to go on is what you
write.

This is what your configuration *should* look like.

1. Cable from the FiOS Optical Network Terminal --> Actiontec MI424WR router

2. Actiontec router --> Ethernet cable to PC #1

3. Actiontec router --> Ethernet cable to PC #2

4. That's it. No USB connections from either computer to *anything.*

If those 4 statements don't describe how your computers are connected,
please explain.
