Windows 7: Unable to ping my iPhone on any WiFi outside my home network

On the contrary, I've been very professional and polite.

For one thing, read all my posts and you would never see any condescending remarks about going to put on a tin foil hat or any comments making assumptions about how much someone knows or does not know on a subject.

Only one person here has done that--and continues to do so--despite being asked politely several times to stop.

This is not your thread and as per all your designations I mentioned earlier, you should know when you're not being helpful and to just stop.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Being hypocritical is definitely not being polite and professional. Ignoring those who have tried to help isn't, either.

Once again, I'll reiterate my questions about security and networking apps. I encountered an issue trying to get Folders Pro working.

Like I said before, we post on here as volunteers. I didn't get my badges and all that you pointed out by being unprofessional and unhelpful, so remember that, as you pointed out above. The issue I had with my apps was IDENTICAL to what you are seeing. Once I removed the wifi-finder app, my issues went away.

So, let's take this one step at a time, shall we? Let's drop the back and forth crap, and stick to what you are experiencing. Do you have any security or networking apps installed on your phone?

My original post was a simple question. Yet, in your very first response, you wrote:

Exactly. You even knew that you went off-track. I politely replied, reminding you that my issue is pinging my iPhone and not the pros/cons of sync'ing to the cloud.

Yet, repsonse after response, you continue to throw jabs and condescending remarks. Even after being asked over and over and over again to stop, you just won't. Baffling! Again, how suprising--not to mention disappointing--from someone with so many badges.

The fact that you mix in a serious query doesn't lessen the overall negativity of your responses; hence, the reason I've ignored your queries. If you were truly professional enough and wanted to get back on-track, you should have responded just with your query and I guarantee you would have seen a different response.

Only YOUR queries are the ones I have ignored; everyone else I have responded to. They may not have had the solution, but I found them all helpful.

You are the only one who continues to agitate and no matter how politely I try to tell you to back off, you still feel "obligated" to "help." And this is the result.

For the zillionth time, stop, stop, stop and leave my thread! I don't care if you have a solution in hand. I guess it leaves me only one last blunt option to tell you: I DON'T WANT YOUR HELP.

I'm sure that's not going to work, either, because you haven't listened thus far but it is all moot now, as I have found a solution, so after posting it to one of the helpful responders in this thread, I shall never open this thread again.

Good luck to you and try to remember not to dilute the significance of your badges.

if via a wireless router/firewall it will be assigning your device an address which is an iana reserved private address. works fine on your private lan. isp's in general do not allow these addresses directly on the internet.
So based on a suggestion on another site, I found a solution...I ended up buying an AirPort Express!

It's portable and I have created my own WiFi and both my laptop and iPhone connect to it and I can sync. And the beauty is that it works at home, too, so no fooling around with configuration settings, even when I travel!

Thanks for your thoughts, though!
