Click "Start" then "Run." Type "cmd" and press enter. In the window of the command prompt, type "net view". The list of all computers on your network will appear. Tell me if this command and recognized by your OS

Re: ping is not recognized as an internal or external command

This error may occur due to messed computer path.To resolve the problem:
  1. Open a Command Prompt and type: Set <hit Enter>.
  2. You should see included: Path C:\WINDOWS\system32.
  3. To correct the path, on your system go to Start>right-click My Computer>click Properties.
  4. Click the Advance tab.
  5. Click the Environment Variables button, and select the Path variable listed under System Variables.
  6. When editing it should include: %SystemRoot%\system32.
  7. Which translates to something like: C:\WINDOWS\system32.
  8. Each entry included in the path must be separated by a semicolon.
  9. Try executing the Ping/Telnet command now from the command prompt.
  10. The same will also work for Telnet and other commands.

Re: ping is not recognized as an internal or external command

The very same happened to me, but Path variable was correct (i.e. $SystemRoot%\System32 was included in path).
Probably everything started from copying the path variable into 'path_old' and creating a new one...
