Cannot access PC from Mac with Go > Connect to server anymore

Hi All,
I had a WGR614 router by netgear and to access files on my PC (hardwired) from my MacBook Pro, i would click finder > go > connect to server> smb://192.168.1.16/ and it used to work. Now I have a WNDR 3700 and that process no longer works. I can't even ping my PC (terminal -> ping 192.168.1.16) anymore either. Im not sure if it is the router because I haven't used this on my old router in a while, but I wanted to test out some speeds and can't connect.

Any ideas?

Edit: Didn't bother checking the PC but I had to change it from Public to Home network it works now

I was going to mention to check the Windows firewall.

Glad to see you got it going.
