Easy one. What would some of the reasons be why I can't ping www.google.com

I'm not supplying any specifics because I would like to see how many reasons there could be.

My internet conn. is good.

Thanx

what is this, a test?

If you can not ping, www.google.com and you can ping 64.233.167.147, Your DNS server is faulty

If you cannot ping either, you could have a firewall or something blocking the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP)

No it was not a test, but you did help me win an argument.
Thanx
