Try this ‘ping’ replacement before?

One really cool and definitely useful cmdlet available in Windows Server 2012 R2 is Test-NetConnection.
 If you run Test-NetConnection without any additional parameters, it will look to resolve to an external Microsoft address (internetbeacon.msedge.net) and will return information such as the IP, Internet alias, and RTT in milliseconds. This can save time when you need to check if a particular system has Internet connectivity.
2 Examples below, first one is without any parameters (resolving to internetbeacon.msedge.net) and the second invoking the -ComputerName parameter which gives you output similar to below:
net-connection
Nice:)
