Automated Network Connection Test

I am not a Linux network guru. But I am sure that someone in the forum can help. I am using a satellite network that is experiencing some troubles. I think that a script that could ping each terminal would be able to provide details of timing and pack loss. Need a script that would allow entering the IP address, the period of testing (hours) and record the data (time date stamp and details) to a file. can anyone point me in the right direction.

You wouldn't really need a script for this, you could use the command:

ping -w SecondsToRun > ./PingResults.txt
Where "SecondsToRun" is how many seconds it should run before it stops and is the target IP, obviously.
