I am trying to ping a server at a specified time period lets say from 10-11 am. If the ping is successful, I want to restart services on the current machine. If not successful to continue to ping. Here is what I have so far.  Can anyone tell me if I am on the right track or what else I need to complete.  

Dim strComputer

StrComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject(_
    "winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
strServiceName = "WZCSVC"
Set colPings = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_PingStatus where Address = '255.255.255.0'")

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name = '" & strServiceName & "'")


Do While i = 0
For Each objStatus in colPings
    If IsNull(objStatus.StatusCode) _
        or objStatus.StatusCode<>0 Then

    Else
        objItem.StartService(strServiceName)

    End If
Next
Wscript.Sleep (6000)
loop

You're declaring the wmi reference twice...try this:
strServiceName = "WZCSVC"
IP = "255.255.255.0"
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
 
Do While PingResult = False
  wscript.sleep 6000  
Loop
 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name = '" & strServiceName & "'")
 
For Each objService in colItems
  objService.StartService()
Next
 
Set objWMIService = Nothing
 
Function PingResult()
  On Error Resume Next
  Set colPings = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * From Win32_PingStatus where Address = '" & IP & "'")
  For Each objStatus in colPings
    If IsNull(objStatus.StatusCode) or objStatus.StatusCode <> 0 Then 
      PingResult=False
    Else
      PingResult=True
    End If
  Next
End Function
