Windows 7: Disabling Ping Response or even stealth it

does http://192.168.1.1 not work?

does your router also have a hardware reset button somewhere - that may clear the password, but will probably also clear all other settings too....

That is impossible. Adjusting something on your machine makes no difference at all to pinging a router. The ping never reaches your machine if you are behind a router firewall. The ONLY way to disable a ping to a router is to disable the ping service on the router.

Thank all you Gentlemen for the assistance. It is indeed a Linksys WRT 120N refurbished. I reinstalled it, and it took, but the Network Magic software on the disk didn't let me in or do anything to it. It set itself up with my password, the same as the first time. All paperwork indicates 192.168.1.1, but it will only respond on 192.168.0.1. Double ratz!

Oh Mike Connor,
Even if this doesn't work, you are the man. Thank you so much. I will attempt it tomorrow and let you know. Fingers crossed Sir, thank you.

You and Mike are way over my head on this one. Hope it figures out correctly.
Thanks again to you both!

It would be impossible if your earlier assertion was correct.

Ergo....

I recall a while back - several members of the team here did the grc test - failed - adjusted only windows firewall inbound rules - passed.

Mike Connor, you have a quick wit as well as a technological knowledge, a hard combo to beat. I stand (well actually, sit) corrected.
Take Care

It is impossible, or are you saying it is possible, and that my assertions are incorrect?

Even if you disconnect your machine from the router, then you can still ping the router if the ping service is enabled.

If you have managed to disable the ping service to your machine, then you are not behind a router firewall, or your router is not correctly configured.
