Hi,

I use the TP link router(192.168.1.1) to connect two PC together and there is PPPoE in router

and connect to internet .

Both PC use cable connect to router.

The XP HOme PC get IP 192.168.1.11 .

The XP prod notebook get IP 192.168.1.10 .

Both network adpator use DHCP to get IP from router.

Both XP/PC bootup safe mode with networking .

There is no firewall/virus scanner startup .

Both PC can connect internet and web browse without problem.

I can ping from the notebook 192.168.1.10 to PC 192.168.1.11

But I cannot ping from the PC 192.168.1.11 to notebook 192.168.1.10.

Why I can ping one PC from one direction , but it is failure from another PC ....

Please advice how to fix ....

in your router you should have some options that looks like this :

Telnet Telnet traffic is blocked from the WAN

FTP FTP traffic is blocked from the WAN

TFTP TFTP traffic is blocked from the WAN

Web Web traffic is blocked from the WAN

SNMP SNMP traffic is blocked from the WAN

Ping Ping traffic is blocked from the WAN

UNCHECK them all, then save the config to your router, and then restart it. (Usually , you have a reboot command in the routers options.)(if you don't have such thing, then press the power button from your router, wait a few second, and power it on again.)

...traffic is blocked from the WAN

That wouldn't help him a bit, since he's trying to ping between two computers

inside the LAN :whistle:

The only reason I can think of, is that the notebook NIC isn't configured (or

able) to reply to ICMP-requests :unsure:
