    Are you using windows7/any window OS, then Go to your network settings and make it a work or home network. I have experianced that if the network is public then can't use Netbios Name for other PCs. normally by default its connecting as public network.

    enable Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP)
    disable firewall
    be sure that they are all on the same local network

    One basic thing you need to make sure that all these computers and laptops have to be in same HOMEGROUP.

    By default, most routers have NAT enabled by default. If the router the laptops are connecting to is sitting behind another router, you have a double NAT situation. You can fix this by disabling NAT on the internal (wireless) router.

    You need to manually configure a route on the routers to each other. What you've setup is a double NAT situation.
