Introduction To Ping
The Ping command is executed in Command Prompt and used to examine the capacity of a source computer to target a particular computer destination. You can use this command to check the communication of a computer network with another network device or computer. You can execute this command by the following steps.
- Launch Command Prompt by typing CMD and run it as administrator.
- Now in the CMD enter the following command “ping www.google.com -n 10” to execute.
This command sends multiple data packets and identifies how many of them return. If any of the data packets don’t return it will show after Lost.
Trick 2- To Manage Wi-Fi Settings Through TRACERT
TRACERT refers to Trace Route that helps in providing several details about the network packets taken from the computer.
Launch CMD> Run it as administrator > Enter the following command “tracert www.google.com” to execute.
The executed tracert command helps identify the path from the computer to another network device through hostname (www.google.com)
Moreover, Hop refers to the number of routers that passes from its source to a destination.
Trick 3- To Manage Wireless Networks Through PATHPING
PATHPING is a combination of Tracert and Ping command line in CMD. it is more informative and helps in finding the location of the lost packet between a host and computer. This command will initially identify the connection of each hop and trace the route to the destination.
Launch CMD> Run it as administrator > Enter the following command “pathping www.google.com” to execute.
