Can you please let us know the exact requirement here?

Do you want this test-connection output for multiple computers?

what the output should contain only the MS time in html? or Server name and their MS time in html?

Yeah so basically here is my code i want another column to just show the average ms time if that makes sense.

$Date = Get-Date -Format "dddd dd MMMM yyyy"
$Time = Get-Date -Format "hh:mm:ss"

$IndexPage = "C:\Remote\Index.html" # This Creates The Index Page
New-Item -ItemType file $IndexPage -Force # Creates The Page

Add-Content $IndexPage "<HTML>"
Add-Content $IndexPage "<HEAD>"
Add-Content $IndexPage "<META HTTP-EQUIV='refresh' CONTENT='5'>"
Add-Content $IndexPage '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="C:\Remote\Router.css">'

$ipcsv = Import-Csv C:\Remote\ip.csv -Header Client,RouterIP

foreach ($IP in $ipcsv)

	$Hostname = $_.Client
	$IPRouter = $_.RouterIP
	$Client = $IP.Client
	$IPAddresses = $IP.RouterIP
$result = New-Object psObject -Property @{'Client'=$Hostname;'RouterIP'=$IPRouter}
Write-Host "Trying $($IP)" -ForegroundColor White

	Try {
	$IPComputer = Test-Connection $IP.RouterIP -Count 2 -ErrorAction Stop | Select -ExpandProperty ipv4Address -ea STOP | `
	Select -ExpandProperty ipAddressToString

	Write-Host "Success" -ForegroundColor Green
