Hey guys (and girls), would anyone mind helping me out with a little bit of a problem here? I'm having a PC and a laptop, connected to each other with a Firewire cable. Couple of weeks back, both machines were able to communicate with each other, transfer files, the whole deal. Rather strangely, they refused to maintain a network connection only yesterday. The network connection would last for only a couple of seconds before going down again. Pinging proved this. In any case, I disabled and re-enabled the network connections, but nothing happened. Both connections are up but they just don't seem to able to ping the other IP.

Both are freshly formatted machines.
