Ping IP

Specs: Windows XP
I have an issue pinging my IP address from the internet at work or friends place.
I can't ping my home PC (which is running XP) from the internet, at work. I have cable broadband internet too.
But, from the PC at home I can ping the IP address and it responds as it should.
I have wireless router to, and I can ping the IP address from another of my home PC’s too. But from over the internet I can't ping it.
Yes, I do have the correct external IP address. I am not trying to ping my internal IP (192.168.0.1)
I have no real idea why I can’t ping from outside my home network.
How can I tell if my ISP is blocking 'ping' or if my home PC network is the issue?

I have setup NAS at home. So I could not connect from outside.

Don't know where is the problem, THANKS

Does the nas device support remote access? If so it should be in the documentation on how to achieve what you desire.

You must assign a static ip and tcp/udp port to the nas unit.
You must forward to that port and ip in your router
You access the nas remotely by typing in the routers wan ip and port number like
64.112.145.5:8080 for example

Your lan ip is behind a router. It is also the same ips that a million other people have. Google private vs public ip for a better understanding.

Here are some options;

set your router for remote access. This will allow you to connect to its web interface just like you were at home. Connected devices page will tell you was is connected/live on the router.

enable remote desktop access so you can access your home pc just like you were there from the internet.
