    There's not enough information here. Please edit your question and add details about your network configuration, including output from Ipconfig on each machine. Initial guess: Wireless isolation enabled at the router...? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Feb 2 '17 at 20:18

Both computers are connected through wireless network and both access the internet normally.

Assuming your networking is setup properly, and that they are in fact on the same subnet, etc., then my first guess would be that you have wireless isolation turned on in your router.

Wireless Isolation is what it sounds like -- it's an option to isolate wireless clients from each other, and from the wired network (so they can't communicate). This is a security option.

I've sometimes had to manually add IP addresses for computers to see each other on the network.

On the page you linked, at the step that says "Obtain an IP Address automatically", try selecting "Use the following IP address" and give each computer IPs, e.g. 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2. (Both should have subnet mask of 255.255.255.0). Then try pinging one from the other.
