well you haven't told us much of what you've done, so that we can help you, 
but I happen to be semi-clairvoyant.  One of your changes didn't happen to be 
adding ipfw was it?  If so try as root:
sysctl net.inet.ip.fw.enable=0
Then try pinging again.  If that works then you've improperly set up your 
firewall.  I didn't think that ipfw defaulted to a closed firewall, so you 
must have set a default deny.
see man firewall
