  • When Command Prompt opens, type the word Ping, press Enter on your keyboard to add a space after Ping. Finally, add Google including the domain extension.
  • For example, to Ping Google.com, type the following:
Ping Google.com 
  • To initiate the Ping, press Enter key on your keyboard. If your PC is connected to the internet, you will receive what is called a “ping reply”.
Ping resolves the Google domain name into its IP address, and tries to contact that IP. If the IP is online, ping will return a “reply”.
