Great tip. Newbie Note - Don't panic if you see --> X packets sent, 0 packets received, 100% loss.
Some sites/servers do not reply to pings.

Another neat program. If you want to see where your data is traveling.
Start - All Programs - Accessories - Command Prompt, on the command line type:
tracert google.com
The information being returned tells you what servers your data is passing through
and the speed at which it is traveling. Great for finding out which servers are running slow.

Well while we are at it why not combine tracert and ping commands to get pathping. At a command prompt type pathping yahoo.com. It pings each of the hops and it takes about 5 minutes to complete. Here is an article if you are interested. http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_...g-Pathping.html

:flowers: When I type that I get "ping.com is not valid win32 system aplication"
even if I type only cmd in run I get "cmd is not valid win32 aplication" and I need to type cmd.exe to open cmd, but I don't know what to do to get ping :thumbsup:

And if you are having problems with conectivity you can ping google by ip address instead of name...good for DNS issues. Try pinging microsoft.com and see what happends.

hi all, heres a newbie question from a newbie... whats a ping and why would you want check it???

i only discovered this site earlier on when i discovered i had some malware and googled for some help, many hours later i think the problem is contained and im checking out the board while i run a scan.

i've heard of a ping before and i know you send it out and it it bounces back and you can tell distance or something but i don't really get the relevance... would appreciate hearing some thoughts on this topic.
