Windows 7: Ping does not go through

Ping does not go through

Ping does not go through to one of the W7 machines on my home network but there is no problem accessing from other W7 machine to this machine for file sharing.
Please help me determine what is causing the above.

So, let me get this straight.

You can go on the web, but you can't ping websites?

This is Ping operation among PCs on the same home network.

My new finding since my original post: Ping does not go through to this particular W7 machine from ANY other W7 machine on the home network. My statement in my original post being that there is no file sharing problem is still true.

My initial thought would be to compare the firewall settings. What message do you get when you attempt a ping?

I tried ping after shutting down the firewall for that W7 machine but to no avail.

The message is "timeout". The entire message inccludes more than that but that's what happens.

My apology for all those responded to this thread. Ping did not go through because I entered a wrong IP. A static IP used to be assigned to the machine in question but for some reason IP had been changed to dynamic one which I did not aware of.

I wonder how this thread can be deleted.

no need to delete the thread... That, by definition, is still a fix for other people.
tldr:
[make sure you're pinging the right ip]
