This is probably pretty simple but I ddont understand why test-connection has this behavior

If I use the command:

test-connection -computername 192.168.1.1

There is about a 3 second delay between every reply

If I use:

test-connection -computername 192.168.1.1. <-- note trailing "."

I receive replies in about 1 second intervals like a typical ping command

Any explanations?

Doesn't happen for me; they're about the same. Does the listed time actually say 3 seconds (3000 ms)? Do you get the same effect using ping.exe (from cmd.exe)? Can you try it on another computer connected to the same router? Can you try it with another destination computer/router? –  Bob Jul 11 '12 at 12:44
    
Without the dot (period) test-connection to a router is very slow. However, to another computer it's the same as with a dot. –  Guy Thomas Aug 6 '12 at 15:41
