  2. 1. Are both your desktop and laptop able to ping the default gateway?
    2. The most likely issue based on your information appears to be something
    to do with firewall. If you have the firewall enabled on the desktop, you
    might not be able to ping it. To check, on your desktop machine goto
    start->Network Connections->Right click on your ethernet
    connection->Properties->Advanced tab->Settings. Here you can
    enable/disable/allow exceptions for that particular connection.
    3. If there is no firewall issue, it could be some problem with the router.
