Do you have any firewalls?
They might block ICMP (ping) packets.
The Windows Firewall tends to do this.

I turned off my Norton 360 firewall and I was then able to ping my own computer.

Keep in mind that Ping (ICMP) Packets are mostly blocked by firewalls because they allow you to see if the computer is there.
If you block ICMP packets there's a smaller chance that someone will find your computer.
Glad I could help.
