    Ping

    Hello,
    IM Mike and im new to Windows, I was wondering is there an app that can send a ping from a laptop with xp home to a local router and if not what is a good app i can download.
    I would appreciate any help

    Well there is a couple things you can do, if you looking for a quick test you can use the simple ping built into windows, or if your looking for continuous monitoring and something that will notify you if the host is down you might want to look into Nagios

    Well, you did specify an application rather than the command line, so you might look at this:

    I am afraid that it is rather old, and hasn't been maintained for a while, but it is a collection of common network tools under a GUI/application?

    Start -> Run and type in cmd and than the command is "ping 127.0.0.1" (replace IP with your routers IP (192.168.0.1?) and youll get some like this

    C:\Documents and Settings\BlazyOne>ping 192.168.0.1

    You gotta be kiddin' me, dood. What are you looking to do? Drive your
    school's admin(s) nuts? They got enough to do.

    Forgive me for diss'ing you, but what you're asking is Networking 101.
    You can google this stuff easier than asking us to hand you the answers.

    mazumbaugh, just curious, if you are completely new to windows, what have you been using? I would assume no *nix flavors if you know nothing of CLI. Even most of the fellow mac users I know do some stuff on the command line periodically.

    On the router address, do you mean its external IP address or its address inside the network?
