How To Change Ping Count In Windows

The default number of echo requests sent by ping command in Windows is 4. This can be changed to any number required.

Here is how :

Open command prompt and type :

ping -n 7 sitename.com

Varying ping count in Windows

The above will ping a site 7 times. In order to ping a site continuously, use the -t parameter as :

ping -t sitename.com

Continuous pinging in Windows

This will keep pinging a site unless interrupted using Ctrl-C. This can be extremely useful in testing stability of an internet connection or a specific server.

Cheers.
