    This might help...

    ==============================================================
    C:\>ping yahoo.com

    Pinging yahoo.com [64.58.79.230] with 32 bytes of data:

    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.

    Ping statistics for 64.58.79.230:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms
    ==============================================================

    Cheers
