ping /?

in a command box. The option you are looking for is "-w timeout" == Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply.

If you had done a Google search with "ping.exe default timeout to wait for reply", without the quote marks, the first result on my search page was http://technet.micro...y/bb490968.aspx, which explains all the various options in detail along with their default values, including:

-w Timeout : Specifies the amount of time, in milliseconds, to wait for the Echo Reply message that corresponds to a given Echo Request message to be received. If the Echo Reply message is not received within the time-out, the "Request timed out" error message is displayed. The default time-out is 4000 (4 seconds).

Cheers and Regards
