I'm guessing you have not used the "ping" command before. It isn't PowerShell, but happy to try and help. I'm guessing you do not have a computer named "DC" on your network.

Something like "ping yahoo.com" should work. It's very easy to ping with .net as well:

function ping ($hostname='yahoo.com', $timeout = 500) {
  $Ping = [System.Net.Networkinformation.ping]::new()
  $Ping.Send($hostname, $timeout)
}


PS /> ping facebook.com
