If you get a response from one side, the cable and network cards are ok.
You should be able to get another from the other side.  What are your IP
addresses and subnet masks you are using for each computer?  Are you using
Fixed IP addresses or is the address being automatically given to one or
both computers?  Have you enabled internet connection sharing?   If you got
a complete response with the address and got a time (ie 10ms) for the ping
with a 100% packet success rate, you should have a good connection and the
addresses are on the same subnet.  I would run the diagnosic program that
came with the network card on the computer that keeps getting a response
timed out, may have an issue. but the one that is getting the successful
ping may not be responding to a ping and therefore may be the problem NIC.

David, thanks.  I enabled file and print sharing and it got me a bit
further, but still not there.  Each computer's Network Neighborhood now
shows 'entire network' (as before) and the computer itself (which it was not
before), but still not the other computer.  When pinging, one computer gets
a reply, the other gets 'response timed out'.  I might add that it's the new
computer displaying 'response timed out'.

The WOWN site says that it's most likely a hardware issue, but both network
cards are working according to device manager in the system properties.  I
don't know how to test the cable.

I hope that's clear
Thanks again
