    8.1


    Please tell me how to find my subnet so I can answer you (1 PC is Win 8.1 and 2 PCs are Win 7).

    It will be under the TCP/IP properties of your network adapter, under the networking and sharing center in control panel.

    You can also check from the command line

    ipconfig /all

    All of the PC are set to automatically obtain IP, subnet and DNS. The subnet is 255.255.255,0

    8.1


    I found the problem. There is a setting in Norton Internet Security which needs to be set to "full Trust" and then pings work fine.

    Thanks for trying to help me.

    Glad you figured out the problem. Another reason I'm happy I dropped the big name AV companies years ago. Used to have all kinds of screwy problem like you just dealt with. No more.
