Are both the desktop and laptop on the same subnet? Part of the same work group?

You said net send won't work, how about ping and ipconfig?
You mention 2 nic cards, are the two computers networked together and the router, or each to the router only?
Have you established that you can access all shared folders without the firewall in place?
If you want to make God laugh....make plans.

Ive had the same problem with my D-Link router, but i found out it blocks every thing, soi made some firewall rules that allow LAN pc's to use certain ports e.g 135 etc, you could allways give that a try
