Is the desktop wired or wireless? Is it getting an IP from the router? Can you ping the router?

go to the start menu & click on Run. then enter: cmd
when the command prompt opens, enter: ipconfig
make sure that you have an ip address similar to the other computers on your network.
can you access files on the other computers?
do you have a firewall and/or antivirus?
