Specs: Windows Vista
PC - Wired to router (Belkin wireless w/4ports)
Laptop - Wireless connection through router
Xbox 360 - Wired to router

All components can access the internet. Both computers can see the 360 and vice versa. I cannot get the PC and laptop to see eachother through the router. How do I get it right?

Just a wild guess. Each has a separate ip address?

So what happens if desktop is 123.12.yada. yada and you type that in the browser on the laptop

They do have separate IP addresses. I was on the phone with Belkin tech support and pinged one computer to the other. Wouldn't go through. Tech support said it's a firewall issue. I go to turn windows firewall off and it says:

"Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the associated service?"

I click yes and it says:

"Windows cannot start the firewall service"

When I run the test to see if I have firewalls up, it says that Windows Firewall is running......I don't get it....both my laptop and desktop are doing the same thing.....
