    Ping

    Alright. I'm really fed up with my ping command. I can't ping anything outside of my network. I'm using a DHCP ethernet NIC cable connection with the Mandrake 9.1 connection. Whenever I try to ping something outside of my network I experience a 100% packet loss. I have no firewall set up that would block them. Someone recommended checkin iptables and that showed up normal. I'm at a loss as to what is making my ping not work. if anyone can help me I would be greatly appreciated.

    **Also If you need more info just ask. I think I covered everything though

    Could you ping outside your network in windows? Most broadband ISPs tend to EAT ICMP ECHO traffic for security reasons these days. Prevent you from mapping the network, etc. Post a traceroute for us.

    Pretty much the same situation over here. I tried a couple of addresses, only one got thru. It wasn't anything like this not a few weeks ago, so I guess DeepBlackMagic's right.

    Yes, the packets are being dropped outside of your own network. Not much you can do about that.

    Trying pinging/tracerting something else that will respond.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
