I was going through a Networking course online and they instructed me to try
traceroute commands on Linux for network checking.
I have Fedora OS v22 and am using WLAN Dlink Router for Internet connection. My private IP address is 192.168.0.103 and that of my router is 192.168.0.1. If I ping any website (e.g. google.com, stackoverflow.com, etc.), I am getting 100% packet loss. I asked a friend to share his public IP address, and, when I ping that IP, I still get 100% packet loss.
Neither is traceroute working. There is only 1 hop showing, which is that of my gateway 192.168.0.1 and the rest
* * *.
What is the problem here? Have all the servers disabled their ICMP echo request? Are there some sites on which ping still works?
