ping problem


Hi,

Can anyone help?

I can ping my internal IP address but not my external IP address which I got from whatismyip.com. What might be some possible problems that I should focus on?? Thanks a lot.

- Jon

can you ping other ip's other than your internal? try for example to ping google.com or some other site, and let us know.

If you cant ping the external address it's either your router problem with settings, or with your DNS settings if you can't ping www.google.com and you can ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (googles IP)
