With the advent of wireless technology, Wi-Fi is increasingly becoming the most preferred method of connection. With a Linksys router
one can connect multiple PCs on a single network. Sometimes, however, it may happen that users get in a situation where they are unable to ping other PCs on a network. They would be get a time out error
. To correct this issue of time out error
one has to check the IMCP settings
. For this, one has to access 'Run
' from the start menu and input a custom command for firewall settings
and change the relevant settings.
I've connected several computers to my Linksys router. I cannot ping between them. Request timed out. Therefore, I cannot share files and the printer.
When I do ipconfig I see their IP addresses but cannot ping them.
PC 1 : 192.168.1.100
PC 2: 192.168.1.101
Check the ICMP settings of Windows.
- Start > Run > firewall.cpl >Advanced > Click "Settings" under ICMP
- The only option that should be checked is "Allow incoming echo request",
