Script or command to ping active nic gateway

I have an application that displays a system tray icon that can reference a command or a script for troubleshooting steps for end users. Pinging the default gateway is a step I would like to add without customizing each application installation for each clients network. Any ideas?

Thank you. I need the results do display to the user. What would I add to the code? I also saved this as a .bat file, is that correct?

.bat or .cmd does not matter, though I prefer latter.
You probably just need the script to pause until a key is pressed to allow for viewing the result. Replace the exit /b with pause.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
