    Home LAN Issues - Newbie


    I'm a severe newbie at networking, so apologies in advance. At my house we have a single modem/router to which we all (three computers, TV, printer) connect to access the internet. I understand that this means we are all on the same LAN. However, if I try to ping the IP4 address of any of the other computers, it fails. Shouldn't I be able to do that?

    The root of this question is that my child wants to play some games with me on our LAN - I'm trying to get it working, but if I start a game and publish it to the LAN, they never see it.

    Any help gratefully received and again, sorry, I'm a newbie.

    A quick test run this on each PC does it see all PC's a firewall can block pings.
