Perhaps you pinged the wrong IP.

To be sure you pinged the proper IP, open a command prompt window (Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and type the following command:

ipconfig /all

This will display your TCP/IP settings. Look for the "Default Gateway" IP and that's the IP you should ping.

If you get no reply yet you still get internet access that simply means the gateway device is set to not reply to a ping.
