It depends.

If I ping 192.168.1.254 I get < 1 which is good.

However if I ping www.computing.net I get 124 which is also good.

The difference is that 192.168.1.254 is about three feet away from my computer. www.computing.net is about 7000 miles away.

Don't trust ping. It is a poor test. It can be slowed down or stopped or lost.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
