Using Windows 8.1 Professional with a USB wireless adapter(TP-LINK Archer T4U), I have full internet connectivity yet all ping calls fail with "Request timed out". Onboard Wifi is disabled at the moment.

List of network adapters: Cisco AnyConnect Mobility Adapter VirtualBox Host-Only Network Bluetooth Network Connection WiFi (onboard) WiFi 2 (The TP-LINK Archer T4U)

I have no idea what's going on, output of ipconfig is provided.

It is possible that PING (or ICMP) packets are blocked/dropped on that network.

  • Sounds like a possible reason. I'll try on another network and check back in. – Dar13 Sep 24 '14 at 21:09
  • @Dar13 You could simply ask the IT helpdesk. I’m sure they’ll have info on something as basic as that. – Daniel B Sep 24 '14 at 21:10

As I know it is a problem of ICMP which I had it before, So CHECK:

  • And if I don't know what to search in Google? I have enabled the firewalls that allow incoming/outgoing ping requests for IPv4/v6 and the problem persists. – Dar13 Sep 24 '14 at 21:03
