As far as I know it is always possible for two different computer systems to ping each other but in my case, with my WAG160N AU it doesnít seems to be possible at all. I have done no changes or experiment with this Lynksis router from the time I bought it. Let me tell you that this router is not even a week old, I bought it few days ago and from the time I have connected it to my computer machines, it created such problems.
Let me get back to the installation process and recollect the things I did during the installation. When I bought this WAG160N AU router the first thing I did was ran a installation disk that I got along with the router and then I followed the procedures, then I got the internet connection. When I tested both my computer system I found that both the machines were simply able to access the internet connection and also they were able to ping the IP 192.168.1.1(routerís IP address where the DHCP is enabled) but when I tried to ping the second machine through the first machine and vice versa, I wasnít able to do so. For you information let me tell you that my first machineís IP address is 192.168.1.101 and second machineís IP is 192.168.1.102.
I am not aware of other Lynksis routers but I feel that there might be other same model products that might be facing the same problem. let me make certain thing clear, there is no antivirus or firewall software lying between those systems that might cause any issue. Just because I am not able to ping both the machines I cant play even the LAN game which was the core reason for me to built this system.
Anyways if thereís anyone who is having this router model and being able to successfully make the connection between their systems and ping each other? Please if possible at least share up your experience, no matter your issue is solved or not.
