I just configured a new modem and router. I went to the Shields Up! website and found that the only thing my system is failing is the ping response. Is this something I should be concerned about? If so, how would I keep my computer from responding to a ping? Is that done in the router firewall (D-Link DGL 4300), or in my PC firewall (ZoneAlarm)? If playing online games, is disabling ping response really a good idea?
Just checked inside ZoneAlarm, under firewall, then custom, the boxes for allowing ICMP and ICMP echo are unchecked, if that helps.
Thanks for reading.
