i don't know your isp's ip address but to ping an ip address do the following at the terminal...

[quote]ping -c 5 127.0.0.1<hr></blockquote>

the 5 after the -c switch defines the number of times to ping the host, in this case 5. 127.0.0.1 is only an example ip address, here you would place the ip address of who ever it is you want to ping. if you don't include the -c switch then it will continue to ping forever, for more information type man ping at the terminal prompt.
