Hi Grady,
It is very hard to troubleshoot your problem without seeing the problem first-hand.

Since you say the problem is related to your local network configuration, you may need to take a look at your router's firewall to check if it is blocking ports.

One thing that I saw when you said you can connect using the mysql command prompt is that you are NOT specifying the port in it.

Can you try connecting the computers using MySQL Workbench instead of using the mysql command prompt? If you can connect with Workbench you should also be able to connect with MySQL for Excel.
