You have a firewall software on y our laptop: either windows firewall or some antivirus program

if the ping is done the entry is there.

Its a firewall issue on the pc or a firewall between pc and switch

Source ping the pc from router interface of the subnet the pc is on , if it doesn't ping its a pc issue , this takes out default gateway settings etcc on the pc. You don't need a default static on the router if the pc is directly attached to the router.

run a wireshark packet capture on your pc, you probably wont be seing any packets if there is a firewall blocking traffic that was not disabled.

try changing your cable and try removing the static route in the router and gateway settings in your laptop. do ping tests again.

why changing the cable when it pings from pc to router but not from router to pc. this doesnt make much sense.

it's a firewall issue.
