It sound like you are using the orange interface (DMZ) or red (WAN)
which does not allow icmp (ping, traceroute). unplug the ethernet
connectors swap them. it sound like you have them backwards you should
be able to reach the admin interface by going to the address that you
setup in the configuration http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:81 it requires the
port specification.

good luck,
