External ping fails on Linksys router


When I try to ping my server from somewhere other than my local network, if finds the host, but returns as a lost packet.

I have my server plugged into a Linksys WRT610N router, and when I bypassed the router and went strait to the server the ping worked perfectly.

So, the problem lies with the Linksys router, but I cannot find anything that would fix it. I have DMZ set to forward everything to my server.

Anyone know how to fix this?

According to this reply in the Linksys UK forum, all you need to do is to Uncheck Filter Anonymous Internet Requests.
