    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.

    https://www.computerhope.com/pinghlp.htm Explains the command.

    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
    
    Status        : Success
    Address       : 31.13.71.36
    RoundtripTime : 13
    Options       : 
    Buffer        : {}
