One of the most used command to delay for a certain amount of time is
PING -n 1 -w 1000 22.214.171.124 REM the -n 1 flag means to send 1 ping request. REM the -w 1000 means when the IP(126.96.36.199) does not respond, go to the next command REM 188.8.131.52 is an non-existing IP so the -w flag can ping a delay and go to next command
This would output the following on your batch file/console:
C:\Foo\Bar\Baz>ping -n -w 1000 184.108.40.206 Pinging 220.127.116.11 (Using 32 bytes of data) Request timed out Ping statistics for 18.104.22.168 Packets: Sent = 2,Received = 0, Lost = 1(100% loss)

>nul at the back of the command to redirect it to null.
ping -n w 1000 22.214.171.124 >nul
This would output nothing.
