    I think you mean PING?

    A ping, or ping test is to test the connectivity between 2 computers. It actually measures the latency (delay or lag time) of that connection. Thus, the reason that your results show as a time in MS (milliseconds).

    If run from the Windows command prompt by typing PING IP OF OTHER PC, the result usually includes confirmation that connection was successful, along with a series of numbers that represent the communication delay in milliseconds (ms).

    The results of a ping test vary depending on the quality of the Internet / network connection. A good broadband Internet connection (wired or wireless) typically results in ping test latency of less than 100 ms, often less than 30 ms. Typically the closer the server, the lower the ping time in milliseconds.

    It is very similar to what we see in old war movies with submarines. Every sub movie I've ever seen has "that" scene where the crew stops all engines, and goes silent (this is usually where some sweaty submariner drops a wrench) while the boats above are hunting (listening) for that sub using a sonar ping via a microphone in the water. The hunters on the surface are looking for a ping back or reflection of that original sonar ping (sound wave)... If they get a reflection (think echo) they have located the sub...

    or a whale!

    In our case, when we ping either a known IP address or a domain name, we are sending a special packet of info called an ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) packet. These ICMP PING packets get to that IP or domanin name and ask for a reply packet to be sent back to the source (our PC)as in this example:

    Notice how I get a reflection, or response, from the other IP above (my router).

    Manytimes when we ping a domain name we can see this:

    What's your Internet Speed?-ping-2.jpg

    This lack of a reply above is usually due to a router or server blocking these PING replies.

    To learn more about ping related commands you can type PING/HELP or PING/? to see all the variables (switches) to that command as I have here:

    Hope that helps!

    BTW... here's mine:
