Hi, here is my problem, my network cannot ping outside, ping in LAN and browsing internet is ok.
When ping www.yahoo.com, I got:
Pinging www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net [209.131.36.158] with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Any idea?

Thanks
Adv.

Try other address as www.google.com  www.cnn.com , do you have the same result?

And if you cannot ping the other addresses as Elimesika said. Do you have a firewall installed. Because then your firewall will block the icmp protocol.

I recommend doing a 'Winsock fix':

- ChecK for any anomalies in your TCP/IP settings.

- Are you behind a router? Does it have a firewall, do you have a software firewall? (try turning these off)

Since browsing works but not ping your connection is ok but the ping are not let through your firewall. Check your firewall settings for the ICMP protocol (might be called ping as well)
