    Did you run Network setup wizard on both the laptop and pc. If so and It's not showing up, run it again(on both) and reset the router, and restart both computers. See if that works. Sometimes those networks are tricky but I find to fix that I just redo the network setup wizard. It only takes a sec.

    Try searching for the computer. Sometimes it won't show up in Network Neighborhood, but will show up if you search.

    Start -> Search -> Search for : Computers or People -> A computer on the network

    Check your firewalls also...
