I am very new to powershell scripting (started today) and using tutorials and samples online I have a decent script that will populate a xls with computer specs.  I would like to have portions skipped over if the computer does not reply to pings.  Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks in advanced.

It is there in your code:
# Now ping the system  
$ping = get-wmiobject -Query "select * from win32_pingstatus where Address='$strcomputer'"  
# Display Results  
if ($ping.statuscode -eq 0) {  
"Response time: {0}ms" -f $ping.responsetime  
##################################
# Here is the part that will run if computer could be pinged
##################################
}  
else {  
"no response"  
##################################
# This is the part that will run if computer could not be pinged
##################################

}  

##################################
# And this is the part that will run anyway
##################################

uhg, so it was there the whole time.

is it possible to make an if statement with this?
$obj32NIC = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer -Filter "IPEnabled = 'True'"

okay.  I used a $null check on $obj32nic

if ($obj32nic) {write-host "not null"} else {write-host "null"}
