PPC connects to net but won't connect to laptop

I've recently added a Toshiba E800 to my 'network' of a laptop with Linksys
wireless access point/router/modem.

Initially, I found I could sync via usb but not via wireless. After much
faffing, I found that I can't ping from the PPC to the laptop, nor from the
laptop to the PPC. Both can ping the router and both can connect to the
net.

I've disabled Zonealarm, although I can't see that being an issue in this
case, plus Norton AV, in desperation! The router has been restarted
numerous times, as has the PPC.

This sounds very basic, but as a newbie, I'm stumped. Please, can anyone
rescue me as I'm running out of ideas, and hair.

Thanks Allan
