please check your network configuration regarding IPs.

If your server has the IP for it to stay easy, all other clients in your LAN should have IPs like 192.168.1.X.

Once setup try pinging your server from your clients. To do so, open a cmd window and type: "ping" (without the quotes). You should receive a reply from your server.
