"Request timed out" message for ping

When I do a ping <IP> I get
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=2332 ttl=254 time=2.17 ms
when thers a reply. But shows nothing when its timed out. How can I get it to show a Request timed out message like in Windows ?

ping is silent when there are timeouts. Use -c 1 if you want to send one packet to test for a timeout.

in case you want to monitor a bad connection watch for icmp_seq number for dropped packets
