Click the 'Start' button and search for 'Command Prompt' in the search bar. Alternatively, click on 'My Programs' and navigate to 'Accessories.' The 'Command Prompt' application is second on the list.
Right-click on 'Command Prompt' and select 'Run as Administrator.' A dialog box will open asking you to confirm your action. Click 'Yes.'
Type 'ping' (without quotes) followed by the domain you wish to ping. For example, to ping eHow.com, you would type 'ping ehow.com' (without quotes). Press 'Enter' to input the command.
Customize the ping command for extra functionality. Ping a domain indefinitely by appending '-t' to create 'ping -t ehow.com.' Add '-n' followed by a number to set a specific number of pings. To ping eHow 10 times, you would type, 'ping -n 10 ehow.com.'
