I believe the 850L series didn't support ICMP features on this model.

Hello. Region is EU (East Europe).

In the firewall options I can only configure TCP and UDP settings, there is nothing on ICMP. I would of been interested to monitor via ICMP to detect some connection problems.

What kind of connection problems are you having?
Please give more details, maybe we can help you identify the problem.

The problem is not router related (I tested with a direct link also), it's a problem of the provider, but I wanted to monitor the connection to report the provider every time it drops. I can't do that with the router connected and I have to let a device online all the time instead.

Good Luck.

I had to mail their management so the problem gets fixed, since it was something more difficult; it's fine now.

Having a basic feature like WAN ICMP would of helped solving the issue faster. Such a thing should not be missing from any router model.

I believe there were security issues and concerns surrounding ICMP years ago. Probably why it's not offered much on any routers anymore.
There are other tools to help debug and find network problems.
