My PC is not reachable on local LAN after changing computer name

Question

My PC is not reachable on local LAN (workgroup) after changing computer name, i then renamed back to the original name, still not reachable.

I tried to ping everybody and it is successful, but other can't ping me or access my shared folders.

What do you suggest in that case?

Thanks

Silly questions - you sound like you know your stuff pretty well so let me know if any of the questions don't make sense, but maybe one of these will help point you in the right direction...

Same workgroup name still, right?

Are you pinging by name, or IP? Maybe flushdns?

Anything in your 'hosts' files?

Static, or dynamic IP's?

Firewall exceptions?

Home vs. Public network location?

What OS's are you using?

Let me know, I'll keep thinking about it.
