In a previous tip, it was revealed how to continuously ping a host until stopped. Here are all of the ping options: 

example .. In DOS .. c:>ping -t 

-t Ping the specifed host until interrupted 

-a Resolve addresses to hostnames 

-n count Number of echo requests to send 

-l size Send buffer size 

-f Set Don't Fragment flag in packet 

-i TTL Time To Live

 -v TOS Type Of Service 

-r count Record route for count hops 

-s count Timestamp for count hops 

-j host-list Loose source route along host-list 

-k host-list Strict source route along host-list 

-w timeout Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply 

Experiment to see how helpful these can be!
