Is there a software firewall on it blocking ping (also known as ICMP echo)? If it is XP, SP2's firewall blocks ping by default.

Not an expert in this area :) .... but I don't think its possible for a pc to ping itself. Machines on my network can't anyway !!

PC's can and should be able to ping themselves, both on 127.0.0.1 and on their ethernet device(s).

If they cant you got a dead nic or a packet filter blocking ICMP ECHO

I think I need the same help.
Not sure what the problem is, but I used to have DHCP server enabled on my router two days ago but disabled it after it kept swapping the IPs around for my print server.
Now I can't connect to my desktop to my laptop. My laptop can't even see itself in the View Workgroup Computer area.
