When you are doing a ping, you are pinging your router. You need to configure your router to allow ping traffic for ping to work.

Ping sends very small packets to an IP host who will answer by sending packets back.
The ICMP packets sent to the host are called echo_request and the packets sent back echo_response.

Routers are configured to reject ICMP packets by default.
