We have a service in the UK that allows us to sign up for free broadband connection quality graphing here Broadband Quality Monitor
It uses ping and records response times to measure latency and packet loss so you need to allow their server to communicate to your router via ICMP. Is there a way of configuring the WRT610N (v2) to allow only a specified IP address (or addresses) to get a ping response?
At the moment, the only way I could find was to disable SPI Firewall protection and Filter Anonymous Internet Requests which I would rather not do.

Hi yleclerc, yep, as I said, checking that option along with the unchecking of State Packet Inspection (SPI) is what I had to do. The question was, is there a more targeted way to do this. I don't want to drop my whole defence shield just to let one trusted machine (IP address)
through to do something I approve of and would like to sanction.
