I was able to ping 2 of the 3 other computers in the network in the command prompt: the computer that is hardwired to the router, and my brother's laptop...the other desktop did not respond to the ping, but it was the only one that didn't respond. I couldn't do anything with the homegroup or file sharing in Safe Mode...I did the pinging again in Safe Mode, and still got the same results. So I did the pinging in the command prompt both in regular mode and Safe Mode, with the same results.

I just did it, but it didn't help. I even restarted my computer, but it still didn't help.

I got it working! I set a static IP, and it works now! I didn't even have to disable Norton! Thanks to all who have helped me out on this situation, especially Ryo.
