As much as I am with you worrying about your relatives, this 
conclusion is bulshit, to put it mildly. When you got mail 
from Linux, you can also get Mail from Windows. And when you 
do not hear from someone you love, there may be thousands of 
reasons why this happens. Unless you KNOW FOR SURE, that a 
virus originating from your linuy machine is the reason why 
you do not get mail from other users, it is very likely to 
assume other reasons.

Again, the very same applies.

Either you take a break or you fresh up your mind somehow. 
Then let's step back and try to solve your problems, one by one.

After you return from your break, please issue this command 
on your laptop:
sudo ifconfig

usually, one of the interfaces will have an address 
beginning with 192.168.x.y

Then fire up one of your non working machines and issue the 
same command, please.

Then report back, waht you found on both machines. This will 
give us a first hint about your netwrok structure and 
whether you problem machine will be on the netwrok or not.

Kind regards
