    I made LAN of my PC and laptop using 1 additional Network adapter in my PC and connecting them both with CAT5 Cross-over cable. I manually stated IP's in Network TCP/IP connection configuration, respectively 192.168.0.1 for my PC and 192.168.0.2 for my laptop.
    Problem begins here - i can ping from PC to laptop and receive response, connect to it and see shared folders/printers. But when i try to ping from laptop to PC, all i get is - Request timed out. Any other connections is impossible from laptop to PC impossible also. Although in Connection Status window, i can see how my PC receive pinging's packets. Both computers firewalls are off.

    P.S. - cant explain this but - when i change ends of cable between computers, my laptops "ping -t" for PC, gets responded 4 times and continues getting timing out after.

    I applaud your trouble shooting. :) Most people never think of switching the cable like that.

    The result makes the cable a top suspect.

    Actually, your symptoms STRONGLY suggest a firewall component of some sort in the way.
