I recently discovered the Shields Up site here:

 

https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

 

All their tests indicate that my router is properly buttoned down save for one thing and that is that my router responded to a ping from the GRC site and the recommendation was to turn this off in the Actiontec's settings.

 

I just looked through the manual for the  Actiontec M1424WR Rev I GigE and could not find how to turn ping off.

Can anyone help & TIA.

Bob

The setting is in Firewall Settings, remote administration under diagnostic tools.

Thanks so much, that did it and when I repeated the GRC Common Ports test, it passed.
