Yes - pings to the same ip address get automatically routed through the
loopback (lo) device, so never actually hit the wire.

There could be a couple of reasons - firstly you should specify a
netmask and broadcast address - for your internal network (192.168....)
you would probably use 255.255.255.0 as the netmask, and 192.168.1.255
as the broadcast address - or check with your local network admin.
You will find it very very help[ful to put a linux box on the same
network, and run tcpdump. Do man tcpdump for more command line options,
but basically you can sniff all traffic to or from a particular IP or
MAC address, examine the contents, etc etc. Very useful for getting
this sort of thing up and running.
