    As far as i know, that is the correct command. Ctrl+C

    You could always force quit Terminal.

    You probably banged around enough to figure it out, but ^c means Control+C. The four-leaf-clover-y thing is the "Command Key". The one that is a poor depiction of a switch is the Option key.

    Or you could limit the number of pings you send by typing:
    ping -c4 192.168.1.xxx
    (replace the 4 with the number of ping requests you want to send, and put in the correct ip address, but I'm sure you've got that already!):)

    If it's behind a router, it could be actively denying a ping request which is quite standard.
