Broadcast ip address issue

recently i upgraded to Rogers Ignite 150 - Unlimited: Hitron CGNM-3552-ROG. I am, i get trying to put my network back together. I have done no changes to the router settings except change the wireless network name, and the admin password. wireless working, able to go on internet.

 

I can ping the router, other computers on the network i.e. 192.168.0.100 i get a proper response, but if i do a ping on the broadcast address of 192.168.0.255, i get "Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)," i need to fix this so i can do and arp -a to find all devices on the network. yes the function is available on router GUI, but if it doesn't work from command prompt there is a big problem with this router. any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Broadcast ip address issue

It may be just set to not respond to pings on that?

Does the ARP -a not work for you?

on the 4852 modem, it doesnt respond to pings on .255 either, but I do get a full response from arp -a and get my full list of devices.

Re: Broadcast ip address issue

Thanks for the quick answer.

 

i set up a test network separate from rogers using a separate router.got this C:\Users\Tony>PING 192.168.1.255

Pinging 192.168.1.255 with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 192.168.1.255:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

C:\Users\Tony>arp -a

Interface: 192.168.1.127 --- 0x21
  Internet Address      Physical Address      Type
  192.168.1.1           94-44-52-1a-ab-15     dynamic
  192.168.1.255         ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff     static
  224.0.0.22            01-00-5e-00-00-16     static
  224.0.0.252           01-00-5e-00-00-fc     static
  239.255.255.250       01-00-5e-7f-ff-fa     static
  255.255.255.255       ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff     static

 

then did  the the same on the rogers router the ping timed as expected, but the arp -a worked as expected.

This experience dealing with rogers made me so upset i forgot the golden of troubleshooting "RELAX" .

Once again Thanks.
