I have got this scenario.

I have got my laptop wireless connect to ADSL router LinkSys WAG54G, and My desktop PC with dialup connection .

From both PCs I can ping any sites on the net, but when I try to ping each other I could not (from PC to laptop, and from laptop to PC), I do not have any firewall on both PC, though I tried to ping gateway for linksys router from the desktop PC (through internet not network), I could not.!!!!

Is there any setting I have to be aware of it?

No, this private IP address (192.168.x.x) becaues it wont be seen from outside, I am trying to ping the public IP that has been assigned to ADSL router via ISP which is 217.23.X.X

That's what I was checking. I know on my Belkin router I have ping turned off, so it will not echo any pings. Is there a certain reason you need to ping your computer?

To do experiment.

By the way if I am not able to ping (layer 3 icmp protocol), how can I access my router remotly in case if I need to access router via internet. Beside that I think we do not have facility with this simple linksys router ( unlike cisco router) to configure the firewall (ACLs) to prevent ping, and allow the other tcp protocol.
