    I have a wireless home network set up using a Netcomm NB5580W adsl
    modem/router.

    Unfortunately my laptop (XP Pro SP2) and PDA (Windows 2003) cannot see each
    other but can both access the internet. They both connect wirelessly using
    WPA-PSK, are assigned static IPs and the sub-net masks are the same. And yes,
    the Windows XP firewall is turned off.

    Any ideas why they cannot ping each other? It is very frustrating.

    Thanks

    Matt
