Windows 7: Wireless sees Wireless, does not see Wired

Wireless sees Wireless, does not see Wired

Still trying to get this network working right again. Everything, wired or wireless can see each other and connect to each other EXCEPT a Dell Mini 10 (w/ Windows 7 Starter). Now the Mini can see any other wireless laptop, but can't see or connect to a wired computer.

I can get the IP address on the mini and ping it from any wired computer and get a timeout. If you ping it with the computer name, it gives path not found error.

Running Windows Firewall and MSE AV. Checked all the advanced setting, tried all the IPV6 fixes, double checked all the sharing settings. VTW, the other wireless laptop (Vista Prem) can see the wired computers.

Anyone know why it would see anotehr wireless computer, but not the wired ones? I keep thinking something in Windows 7 Starter is the culprit, but that is what came on it.

Are the IP's assigned from the router? Not static IP?
Are you using homegroup?

Nope, could never get homegroup to see it either, so I turned it off on the 2 wired computers that have Win7. It is router assigned ip's via DHCP.
