Re: Powerlink: Why can't I ping my router anymore?

There is a workaround for this. You need to change the default value in which pings are comprised. When you ping, you send out packets that are 92 bytes in size. You need to change that, as that is the only workaround. Many programs, such as Visual Route, allow the user to specify the size of the ping packet.

Does anyone know of a way get change the ping packet size used by DSLREPORTS Monitoring service? My cable provider apparently filters ICMP packets of 92 bytes.

I doubt you can get DSLR to use another packet size. Your ISP filters 92 byte packets because that's the size packet that the NACHI worm uses.
