I have a SRXN3205 router, I would like to be able to ping specific computers on the network from the router, I don't see anything that would let me do that.

Am I missing something

This is all being done remotely that's why it has to be done from the router.

There would need to be a feature that was provided on the router's admin page that lets you do a ping test. Not all routers can do it, the developers who wrote the web administration interface would have had to think of it and put it in.

But it seems like you're in luck.  There is a "ping or trace an IP address" function in the Monitoring->Diagnostics section of the router's web interface.

Here's the reference manual for your router. Check the section "Diagnostics Functions" on page 198.
