In this tutorial, we will teach you about pinging an IP Address. You need to know the IP address in order to ping the IP. We will ping the default gateway in order to check if it is functioning properly and whether we can communicate with the local host on the local network.

Ping the IP address of the default gateway in order to check if the default gateway is functioning properly and whether you can communicate with the local host on the local network.
