[access-uk] Re: using Ping and Tracert

HI Marie.

Ideally you want the quickest connection possible, the time given with Ping represents the time it takes for packets of data to make the round trip between you and the ping site and back. therefore the quicker the time the better. Therefore the smaller the number the better.

I get times that vary throughout the day but they are never worse than about 30 MS for www.google.co.uk. I have seen connections twice and 3 times that time but it also depends on your broadband upstream and downstream speeds.

I would only really worry about these ping times if you are having specific problems. In Jackie's case it was a number of different models of internet radio not playing streams reliably.

Cheers

Ok, I've read it all and understand the basics of what it does and what it's for, but it doesn't answer my question about what the average number should be. Has anyone any ideas? is the higher the better or the other way around?
Thanks for info.
Marie

OK all.

Have found this page for starters on using Ping and Tracert. Some of the values, particularly for pinging a distant computer look a bit low but the way the commands work and what they do is well explained.

Cheers
