Question about Computers & Internet
Firstly, don't think that PING is 100% reliable, it is a very useful
tool, but the packets can be failing for a number of reasons, and can
be filtered or dropped because a device is too busy, or a number of
However, if the test works fine from your laptop, but not through the router, then the router config is a very likely candidate as the cause of the problem.
Have you tried the PING test from the router itself ? Did this also drop the packets ?
If that works, then it is the router config that is probably at fault, if that also fails, then it may be a routing issue, or a problem between the router and the modem. If that is Ethernet, have you fixed the speed and duplex ? Try setting it to auto, reset the link, and try again.
