More likely it's Windows or other software firewall(s). Turn them off -- once a reliable connection is made, re-enable and they should adapt to the new connections.

1. Are the computers on the same IP sub net?
Are the addresses DHCP assigned?
Run this command in a cmd window on both computers to see all the IP address info>> ipconfig /all

2. Is your wireless router secured with WEP or WPA?

3. Can both computers access the internet?
