Hi Juan,
    If you haven't already you'll need to create a new security group,
add a custom icmp rule and set the type to "Echo Request" so that your
pings can get through. You'll probably also want to add a tcp ssh rule
also. Then I think you'll have to restart a new instance using that group.

Hope this helps,
