    for example

    or ping google -l 1000 -t

    Assisted Solution

    ping <ipaddress> -l <size of packet in bytes>
    For more options available with ping command in windows you can use following command at command prompt:
    ping /?
    It should display the following options to you::

    Usage: ping [-t] [-a] [-n count] [-l size] [-f] [-i TTL] [-v TOS]
                [-r count] [-s count] [[-j host-list] | [-k host-list]]
                [-w timeout] target_name

        -t             Ping the specified host until stopped.
                       To see statistics and continue - type Control-Break;
                       To stop - type Control-C.
        -a             Resolve addresses to hostnames.
        -n count       Number of echo requests to send.
        -l size        Send buffer size.
        -f             Set Don't Fragment flag in packet.
        -i TTL         Time To Live.
        -v TOS         Type Of Service.
        -r count       Record route for count hops.
        -s count       Timestamp for count hops.
        -j host-list   Loose source route along host-list.
