I passed every single network security test.

I have NO FIREWALL RUINING
NO ANTI-VIRUS

Can someone explain?

I do have my linksys WRT54GS set up to block echo requests... so thats why you cant ping me.

And as for windows firewall I completely removed the service so im 100% positive its not running...

P.S. How did you get my IP! ? : P
