How to Ping External IP from Nexus 7

Pinging is an tool to send an ICMP packet to a specific IP address for testing the presence of other devices on a network. Normally, you can ping an android device from a computer. But is it possible to ping from my Nexus 7?

* Make sure that your tablet is connected to the WiFi network.
* Go to the Google Play Store and download the "IP Tools" application. It is a free app that help you ping local/remote/external/internal IP address, Ping and check a website and measure your connection speed.
  The app is simplistic without details, but really a good network tool for Nexus 7. Easy to find out my local wifi IP address. Hope it shows individual ping to check for packet loss.
