   Sorry to but in here, but I have seen a problem like this with pings
before... not remembering the solution off hand but what it's saying is
that your packet is only 52  bytes (+ 8 byte header) instead of 56 bytes
as it should be.    If you throw the first line of your error into

wrong data byte #52 should be 0x34 but was 0x0

A lot will come back all related to this and generally over my head.
But it might help in diagnosing the problem.    I contacted a friend of
mine who dashed off a quick note to me saying to look at the size of
packets going out and coming back.  

56(84)  should be outgoing and 64 bytes coming back.    Otherwise he
wasn't at all helpful... sorry.  Basically it seems that the return size
should be 20 bytes less than the transmit.
