    PC -A: regular pc, win 7, direct connection with cable to wireless router, from router to internet modem and so on..
    PC -B:portable pc, acer, win 7, wireless connection to router.

    both PCs have internet connection working, and PC-a can ping PC-b. on the other hand, PCb cannot ping A
    and i cant access the shared foloders or printers on either of em. what could be the problem?

    Usually this is caused by a firewall preventing ping in one direction. PCa has access to PCb but PCb does not have access to PCa. Check that the IP address for PCa is allowed by PCb in your firewall.

    Hope this helps.
