I think you should give us more detail as to the problem, because we may be able to help a little more. – user3463 Apr 10 '11 at 7:03

If you want to enable ICMP on the DIR-600, open your router's configuration and enable WAN Ping on this page:

Advanced -> Advanted Network

Whether or not it will help depends on the problem. If you would like help with that problem (or if enabling ICMP responses did not fix it), feel free to update your question.

Open a web browser, enter, and hit enter. The username and password should be admin and admin unless you changed them.

Look around for 'ICMP' or maybe 'Filter Anonymous Internet Requests' in the various areas of configuration.

@Smurf64, caution; “look around for…” answers often evoke down-votes. – Synetech Feb 10 '12 at 0:45
