The -l 408 is there to only allow ping packets of length 408 to set the
IP address. That is needed if a device has more than one network 
interface and is needed in some DHCP environments (IIRC) to prevent
setting a new address when you really don't want to.

Use ping -s 408 on Linux and ping -l 408 on Windows.

(For those who wonders: The length 408 is choosen to be easaly 
remembered since the MAC address starts with 00408C)
