I have checked the system itself and the IP address shows to be 192.168.0.6 but while I try to ping the system from my other machine within the same network the error shows that the destination cannot be reached

    Please provide a description of your network topology. Without knowing the hardware configuration of your network, we can't say what's wrong.

    In general, any address that begins as 192.168.x.x is one of the "unroutable" addresses. That's part of the design of internetworking. Addresses such as those need to be on the same network segment in order to connect with each other (without some specific protocol handling). Most likely, the source and target devices are on different segments (different sub-nets).

    Check your lan wire which is attached to your pc. Or observe is there any yellow symbol on the network icon which is located at the lower right corner on task bar.

    Thank you TheRealRaven and Subhendu Sen for the reply. My system is connected to a wireless network and I am using a Dlink router in my home.
    And while navigating to the Dlink router page I see my other computer IP address is 192.168.0.6 and when I try to ping that computer I am getting the following response.


    Pinging 192.168.0.6 with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from 192.168.0.4: Destination host unreachable.
    Reply from 192.168.0.4: Destination host unreachable.
    Reply from 192.168.0.4: Destination host unreachable.
    Reply from 192.168.0.4: Destination host unreachable.

    Ping statistics for 192.168.0.6:
        Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),



    whereas as you see 192.168.0.4 is the ip address on my own system.
    Hope so this provides the information. Please let me know if there is any more information that I can provide.


    And also Subhendu there is no yellow symbol on the network icon, and I am absolutely sure that my system successfully connects to the internet and everything seems to be fine.

    Your ip is 192.168.0.4 and you are trying to pinging 192.168.0.6, that's fine, have you tried to ping other ip like 192.168. 0.5/ 192.168.0.7, is there no any other network, then change the ip of target network and try to pinging. Sometimes, anti virus/ other optimization tools can block the same ip. Please check it.

    Since the reply is coming from the source device, it indicates that address resolution isn't working for <192.168.0.6> on <
    192.168.0.4>. That might be because <192.168.0.4> has an incorrect route set up or something similar.

    Since <
    192.168.0.4> is running the ping and it's also the system that's giving the reply, the ping packet isn't even making it out of the system to the network.

    The routing table and default gateway of <
    192.168.0.4> would be helpful, as would be the address of the router.

    I am sure that there is no app or firewall blocking the connection. and I have also tried changing the ip address of the router. Still the same issue

    Open any browser and type 192.168.0.1 on address bar, supply user/pass and observe minutely the setup of the same network.

    The router is unlikely to have anything do with it; it's almost certainly not being contacted for this ping. We need to see the routing table from the <192.168.0.4> device in order to know where to start.
