Well yes and no as there are programs that still like to have access to ICMP [I know not many but they are out there]. Trying to explain how to filter ICMP so as to filter the ping, but enable compatibility to other apps if they are used as well of course if you kill ICMP there is nothing to hear the request, nor running to answer it

Howdy Mike Conner,
I was very rattled last night and it probably wouldn't have sunk in to deep. I have a previous DLink and this Linksys, and both behaved as you described.
The commodo, I think I will shut it down and try again. Hopefully the Network Magic Software that came on the Cisco Installation Disk did not screw up the passwords. I am leaning in the software problem. So I will go at it, soon. At least I can get it runnable again should I fail. Thanks for the assistance and moral support!

Seems OK again now.

So. First of all a router is usually ( but not always) a piece of hardware which directs traffic to where it is supposed to go, and prevents any traffic it is set up to prevent. The router is normally connected directly to the internet via cable. The machines using the router are connected to it via cable or by wireless.

A firewall, which can be hardware or software, but in most cases nowadays is software, is also basically a traffic director, whose main purpose is to stop any unauthorised traffic, and allow any which is authorised.

I can't test the "Comodo" stuff, because I don't use it, and don't have it on my machine. Unfortunately, I also have no idea what the ""Network Magic" does. Without knowing exactly what these things do, I can't give you any sensible advice on them.

Normally, if your machine is attached to the router, then you can simply enter the address of the router, and log into it in order to set it up. If you are unable to do this, then most likely the software is preventing you from accessing the router.

I can't think of any way to overcome that while still using that software. Also, it may well be that some other address has been set up in the router, and unless you know that address, you can't access it. Normally, re-setting the router to factory defaults should allow you to access it, based on the default settings. If this does not work, then I can't think of anything else for you to try.

Hello Mike Connors,
I think I am really messed up. Okay quick update, found that in Network it shows your router. Knew it showed somewhere but wasn't sure. Okay to the point, last night I showed two routers. One a router looking icon that said Linksys Wrt120N and a second one that had a different icon with an antenna. This occurred after reinstalling the router, my firewall showed several networks. I at that time could get to 192.168.1.1. I removed all the networks except my original named network.
I just looked at Network and the first icon is the only one visible. On clicking the icon it pops up the browser to 192.168.0.1. In its details it states that the address is 192.168.0.1. This is wrong as I recall that was the address of my old DLink router. I believe the second icon which is gone now had the address of 192.168.1.1. I told you I am severely messed up.
Can you point me in a general way toward how success. I now can ping the wrong address "0.1" and the browser will pop up a logon screen at the wrong address (note it says its a WRT120N") but the default and the password that the Network Magic installation program set as a text file on my desktop, do not work.
Manically Yours

I will post the link to the page as they have screenshots and explain it in detail.. Keep in mind that ICMP is used by certain apps to verify you have an internet connection and other stuff so you may want to follow the directions and set the rules accordingly so you enable ping for your routers LAN address [ado ipconfig in command and copy the gateway address this will be your router], and disable it for anything coming in on WAN. Keep in mind you may want to check as I know I can use certain filtering setups in DD-WRT [a modified firmware for Linksys Buffalo, Hawking and other routers] Google it it's out there and popular once installed you will be able to fully customize your router with firewall, and you could do this there [and then if you re-install windows or something you don't have to remember to reset this]. Block Ping Traffic with IPSec
Hello AmbrosialPariah,
Thanks for responding with this neat information. Unfortunately due to my inexperience as you can see in a previous response to Mike Connor that I am unable to connect to my router setup page. I believe somehow it is now setup to the wrong router setup page address. It by all accounts and previous experience is supposed to use 192.168.1.1. The only router showing in "Network" is correctly named and described but shows 192.168.0.1 as the correct setup page. My browser times out trying to reach the 1.1 although last night it did connect successfully. I am totally out of my league here. Any help to reconnect to my wireless router setup page is my priority as of now.
Thanks again.

The only way to get into the router if you don't know the address it is set to, is to reset it to factory defaults, as previously described.

There is no other way.

If you are using that router, then the correct address is stored on your machine. You can get that address using this;

Hello brady,
Ipconfig shows the IIRC wrong address 192.168.0.1. This rabbit hole is really deep. That most definately is the address of my old DLink router.
Thank you!!

May I call you Mike? Mike, ipconfig /all shows the 192.168.0.1. If you are saying that this address is retrieved from the actual router at the time of the command then I don't know what. I am going to have to try a reset again.
If everyone who is monitoring this post could cross their respective fingers, I may be back with good new.
Thank all for your contributions and advice!

You need to open a command prompt, ( "Dos-Box"), as administrator, and type in "ipconfig",

this will give you a window like this;



the address you want is the "Default Gateway" address.

This will of course only be the correct address if you are using that router.

If you are using some other router, you will get a different address.
