Ping/Networking general difficulties

Hopefully someone can help. I am running an iMac with Mac OS 10.3.7 and also a PC with Windows 2000. Both are connected to a Netgear Firewall/router. For some reason I can no longer see the iMac from the Windows machine OR the Windows machine from the iMac. I can't even ping either of them. (Both can ping the Netgear though). And both machines can use the internet just fine.

What could be wrong to not allow the two computers to see each other? (I'd like to be able to share files between the 2 machines).

Turn on Filesharing on both machines.

Unfortunately that had no effect. I still can not ping either machine (from either machine).
Any other ideas?
