weird connectivity question on subnet

so i have a few systems on the network and the switches/routers they are plugged into are managed.
i have one linux system (A) on static ip address for example of
it works fine.
a second system (B) i made static ip address of
this second system if i'm on the console i can ping and connect to A no problem. and A can see B no problem.
However A can get out to the rest of the network, where B cannot.
And if i'm on my win7 pc in the other room which is dhcp and on something like that sees everything including system A but not system B.
when i try to ping it says
pinging with 32 bytes of data:
reply from destination host unreachable.

on linux systems A and B the subnet mask is
my win7 pc subnet mask is

can someone offer an explanation and recommendation?

Your masks look wrong:
A =
B =
Win =

The IP address range for A & B is: -

The IP address range for Win is: -

This overlaps the network that Win is on.
It looks to me that A & B should be on a /24 bit subnet (
Either that, or Win should be on the same /16 subnet as A & B - are they separated by a router?
