    Has the article I linked to helped?

    Pinging in Mac OS X: Open terminal and enter ping 192.168.0.2, whereas 192.168.0.2 is the IP address of the Windows PC.

    Pinging in Windows 7: Open Command Prompt and enter ping 192.168.0.3, whereas 192.168.0.3 is the IP address of the Mac OS X computer.

    For some reason I can now transfer files from my PC to my Mac(possibly down to a reboot), but I cant transfer files the other way.

    Not that it really applies to OP's problem, but just to add an additional way to ping, if you don't like using terminal there is a Network Utility in applications that you can also use to perform network tests like ping.
