iperf might be able to do what you need and there are Windows builds available, but I'm not sure if it has a mode where it's

want packet loss info?  Obviously every platform worth using has ping built in.

 In UDP mode, iperf sends at 1 Mbps by default.  You change
the rate with the -b flag.   There's an iperf-2.0.5-cygwin
build floating around for Windows.
