Still with the computer not working.....

STOP THE PRESSSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I FIGURED IT OUT!! AFTER I TYPED IN ALL THE PINGING STUFF, I DECIDED TO GOOGLE THIS PROBLEM AND SOMEONE HAD THE EXACT SAME ISSUE (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT)
SO I DID WHAT THEY DID AND IT WORKS! I CAN SEE THE DESKTOP.
it was McAfee firewall, I had to allow incoming from the trusted laptop :)
I
AM
SO
SMART


Ok, it's been almost a month since I set aside the non-connecting issues between the laptop and desktop. I decided to try again today. not good.

Here is what I've found out, with some help from sister's husband:

I am able to ping the laptop from desktop
I cannot ping the desktop from the laptop
I can ping the router from the laptop

In the meantime, I'm still not knitting that other sock or the scarf. I am reading "Inkheart".

Also, son #2 won his hockey tournament this past weekend :)

You must be brilliant, I don't even know what pinging is. But, I'm more hip than hubby who didn't know what a shout out was ;-)
