(not) Harry Potter and the black art of TCP/IP.

I have a Wireless Ethernet bridge which I have connected to a PC via an ethernet cross-over cable. This is working fine in terms of allowing access to the wireless network I can browse the net from the PC etc. with no problem. The problem comes when I try to ping this PC behind the wireless bridge from another PC. My other PC's on the network simply refuse to see it - all PC's are connected to the same wireless network and have no problem seeing each other except the PC connected via the wireless ethernet bridge. All PC's are in the same Windows XP workgroup and indeed in the workgroup the bridged PC can be seen in the network neighborhood by all the other PC's with no problems but cannot ping it or access it via TCP/IP etc. All PC's are in the same subnet - mask is All PC's are configured to have the default gateway of the Router - All IP Addresses are static as well. What am I doing wrong here or will the wireless bridge effectively hide the second PC from any other PC's on the network - clearly not an acceptable situation. I'm 99% certain this is not a firewall issue either as the second PC can see other PC's on the network with ease. I'm going slowly mad over this so any help gratefully received. TIA, Matt

How can I improve the quality of my wireless connection?

Wireless troubles- I have a Belkin wireless router at home hooked up to a cable connection. Most of the time the system works great, but every couple of hours (approximately-it's unpredictable) the network will just disappear; no internet connection, and the network is not visible in my internet connect utility. This happens with my Mac Powerbook as well as my wife's PC. The connection returns after a while- maybe 5-10 minutes or so. Sometimes I try unplugging then re-plugging in the cable modem and the router. This seems to work sometimes, but sometimes not. How can I fix this? [more inside]
