    Packets: Sent = 8, Received = 8, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 399ms, Maximum = 643ms, Average = 457ms

    I would start by looking at RFC's involving ping. http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2925.html
    From there I really don't know. There's probably some library for vb that makes it really easy, check around.

    Not really helping, but I hope your lecturer doesn't want you to ping a a host which blocks ping :P. I guess in that case you could show him with the ping that comes with your operating system that the host doesn't respond to ping, and that way he won't try and pin it on your program. Good luck and sorry I'm not really of any help on the actual programming part of the project. Normally any projects you do for a class use techniques covered in the classes leading up to that date. When doing projects for a class generally you'll be the best help for yourself as you attend the class for which you are doing the project. If you get in a bind check out irc.freenode.net #c or #vb (you will need to download an IRC client such as xchat www.xchat.org). Again, best of luck.

    Since this is Code Review forum, we actually expect a piece of code to review. For starter, why don't you make a skeleton program that do nothing but display a dialog box where a user can enter the hostname (and prolly ping count)?
