By default its totally disabled in Windows 8.It ignores all ICMP requests.You can get rid of this by ensuring that your entire firewall is disabled.Otherwise not.But making your firewall disable can cause security risk.Thank you.

Ping problem is usually caused by satellite connections that is also known as latency, to overcome this problem use a broadband connection and make sure that you are not far connected from the server.

There's no ping related problem such as satellite connections. Some websites block ping requests and tri is right about the firewall, enable ICMP first
