So you're saying that when you're on the internal network and you try to ping the external IP of your router ... some routers let you and others don't?  AFAIK it's just the way each company chooses to make each router.  On all the home-grade routers I've played with I haven't seen an option to change it.  And I never know why some choose to do it and others don't.
