Does it resolve to the proper IP address? (127.0.0.1)
Have you enabled the IP protocol for the adapter?
Did you manually install a network driver?
Are you running a virus scanner / firewall solution?

Posting the output of the ping would help.

here, I see that pinging my machine name resolves to the IPv6 internet
address (in the mixed notation)

when I have no internet connection, it resolves to ::1 (localhost)

Re: cannot ping myself under vista
"Localhost" is "myself" - are you confusisng "Computer description name" for
the computer's workgroup name?

Re: cannot ping myself under vista
All,

With Firewall on, I cannot ping my local machine by name. I can ping via
IPv4 (127.0.0.1) or my machine's IPv4 address obtained via DHCP
(192.168.x.x). I can also ping using 'ping localhost', which resolves to
::1:. Internet access works fine.

Three questions:

1) What specific firewall settings can I change without turning it off
completely?
2) Also, who does Windows return different IPv6 addresses depending on
whether the Firewall is turned on or not?
3) Finally, why does windows return an IPv6 address when IPv6 is not bound
to any network adapter on my Computer (btw, the did try binding IPv6 to all
adapters and received the same behavior, ping success with FW off, ping fail
with FW on.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

ping with Firewall turned on:
C:\Users\dhom>ping burgerbox
