Cisco Switch can't ping anything

I configured this Cisco 2950 switch. It's in production. I have our servers connected to the switch. I can the servers with no problems.

However, I can not ping the switch (192.168.1.101) itself. I can't telnet into the switch. I have to hyperterm into it.

When I do hyperterm into the switch, I can not ping anything from the switch.

How can I make this switch pingable? How can I telnet into this switch?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

There might be an ICMP restrict on your router so please check the access list on router and make sure that the router allows this.

From the Switch, I can't ping anything, except itself (192.168.1.101). I can't even ping the default gateway.

I'm not using any access-list on any of our routers.

I also tried changing the switch IP from 101 to 132. Nothing.

Any chance you're having an IP conflict? Seems odd to IP a switch that high in the range...

You must have a firewall somewhere between your switch and the next hop.  Check the firewall for ICMP restrictions.

Can you trace the traffic and see where the traffic stops?

I have (3) cisco 2900 series switches. The other two switches are fine.
Cisco 2950 (192.168.1.239)
Cisco 2900 (192.168.1.93)
No problems with these switches.

Cisco 2950 (192.168.1.101). I can't telnet into this switch.

I did the following:

line vty 0 4
exec-timeout 60 0
login
password cisco

It didn't work. I still can not telnet in to the switch, let alone ping this switch.

IT WORKING!!!!

a cold re-boot fixed it.

I unplugged the switch for a second, then plugged it back in. It came back up in 20 seconds. I'm able to ping the Cisco2950 switch (192.168.1.101).

Sometime in the future, I'm gong to upgrade the firmware
