Hi Marge,

Would you have gotten this modem from eircom originally and do you have an internet connection with it? If you did it's just pinging a hard coded address it has in it's software. If you go into advanced or expert mode you should see the actual addresses the modem is using now.

Hi Margesimpson,

This looks like your firewall is blocking your ping requests. It's not a big deal if your modem is successfully connection to the internet.
