Can't ping the floating IP of an instance

I just create and OS deployment with fuel with 1 controller and 1 compute node. I can launch an instance (oddly enough Admin account can't but another account can) and it boots correctly. Within the Cirros instance I can ping my public gateway, and the internet (8.8.8.8). However, I cannot ping the instances public floating IP (e.g. 192.168.1.130) from my laptop (192.168.1.9). The firewall/security within Openstack is accepting everything. I can even ping my laptop from Cirros (the openstack instance). I can login to the router namespaces on the controller and can ping stuff without an issue. Not sure where to look from here on debugging this issue.

I realize this topic seems to come up a lot and I tried those suggestions but none of them worked. Any suggestions?
