This question is a bit old, but in case it's still an issue;


The TP-Link, like most home class routers, blocks pings to the WAN interface by default. Finding the right place to change that can be a challenge. In this case go to your Firewall -> Attack Defense -> Packet Anomaly Defense page and uncheck  Block Ping from WAN. Click Save and you should be good.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


Are you sure that you want your router to respond to WAN pings?  The normal response, for security, is to drop the request and not respond.  If your router responds to a WAN ping that is an indication to an attacker that there is active equipment on that IP address, which could lead to a more focused attack.
