Missing WiFi.ping() function

I would like to use the WiFi.ping() function described here.

It seems the Seeed_Arduino_atWiFi library doesn’t provide it.

For IoT projects, it is very important to be able to check whether the server is alive and responding.

Do you plan to implement it?

I opened ticket #4 at the GitHub repository.

Thank you!

Thank you for your feedback.We will improve it as soon as possible.

Hi, is it available now?

I guess there are only hardware people here ;.

I found this example - seeed_wio_terminal\Seeed Arduino rpcWiFi\examples\wifi_ping
and it worked for me…

bool check_ping() {

bool ret_ping = Ping.ping(remotePostIp);
if(ret_ping) {
Serial.print(“Pinged “);
} else {
Serial.println(” Ping fail”);
return ret_ping;

with an output
