    I have windows 8.1 pro 64bit and i have run into a problem. My ethernet is not working correctly. It cannot ping over a lan connection, for it says timed out and cannot receive files, but it can still send them. the computer that is receiving the files can ping the computer which cannot receive. IN summary, Computer A cannot ping or access Computer B, but Computer B Can ping and access computer A. This is a new problem as i was using it fine a week ago with no troubles, i have no idea what is causing this, i have tried a tracert on both computers, on Computer A it timed out, and Computer B responded to computer A with one hop and <1ms ping. I have also tried using a different computer as computer B and that did not resolve the problem. I have also reinstalled my driver and reinstalled windows on Computer A and that did not help either. As a side note, on wireless i can ping fine. All suggestions would be appreciated

    strange to me also, but seems it might be a Firewall issue...
    disable the firewall then see if ping goes. if YES then you know its a FW issue.

    First at all your Title misleads! Ethernet is an Network Cabling using 4 pair of twisted wires, 2 pairs actually use: 1 for transmitting (TX) and one for receiving (RX) and 2 as spare. LAN means: Local Area Network! Orther networks are using Fiber (Fiber Optic Cable), Arcnet (Coaxcial Cable) and a few other.

    As EFA11 told, check your Router first and assign for each PC on your LAN an fixed IP. Than check the NIC settings in Windows Network and Sharing Center, following by the Firewall settings. Look out for each machines setting about allow or disallow Ping etc. and also that sharing is enabled on all machines!
