Your personal firewall is probably enabled for this specific connection and blocking local network connections...

It might also be and idear to check that when you are pluged into ethernet that you have the same IP range as when you are using the wireless.

If you are using Vista or Windows 7 in the Network and Sharing Center check that both networks are marked as the private location type not public.

did you mean 192.168.0.4 and 192.168.0.9.
It does not matter that you get a different address on ethernet and wifi it is just the way it works.
