Bad news I'm afraid. To address your 3 (and I must say well formed) 

1) "has anyone done anything to create anicmp network check of remote 
hosts"? Yes, several shiploads of attempts.
b) "can share some code"? Unfortunately (for you but not for me) no. I 
sold the company and therefore the intellectual property.
c) "hoping for something native to Gambas..." AFAIK No.

To be serious, if I recall correctly, we had to use the Gambas 
"externals" features and (highly IIRC) the nmap api.

But what is your intent? Are you trying to determine connectivity, 
connectivity features (naughty :-) ), connectivity "status" or something
