Orbi RBR50 ICMP enabling

My internet provider is trying to ping my Orbi and it is failing.  How do I enable the ICMP?

 

Thanks!!

Well.................................. There is an option on the Orbi web interface, Advanced Tab, WAN Setup, "Respond to Ping on Internet Port."

You should be aware that once the Orbi begins responding to Ping, every hacker in the known world will begin actively attacking you.

So, once the ISP is satisfied, I would turn it back off.
