Cannot Ping myself

By scoobie103 ·
I am using Windows XP. I enter ipconfig. I see my IP address, sub and gateway address. I enter ping xxx.xxx.x.xxx (my IP address) and I am receiving request timed out. I can ping the gateway. I can ping all of the other PC's on my network. When I try to connect to another PC, I cannot. Other PC's can see me on the network, but cannot access me (it says to check with the system administrator for access privilages). I cannot see other PC's on the network.

Make sure the XP firewall is turned off (plus any other firewall you might have), then ping yourself.

If no go, type "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" at a command prompt.

If this doesn't work, let us know.

I do not think ipconfig /release or renew can help you. Try to check the Trusted IP range in your firewall setting.

try Ping localhost if that works then check your and make sure your firewall (either Windows and/or alternate (AV) firewall is turned off and then test your local IP ping again.

Static IP or DHCP?

Try ping 127.0.0.1 , this will confirm if the network card is working. If not then there is a problem with the TCPIP installation.
