to troubleshoot network connection via Command Prompt with Ping and tracert.

If you are experiencing connection issues to your website or other network connection problems, Windows and other operating systems have some standard tools that you can use to identify the problem. Firs

t, there is a ping command. Type ping (or any Internet server that you want to test) and Windows will send the packet to that address. You can use the actual name or IP address. The server at that IP address (in our case, the Firgoos server) will respond and notify you that they have received it.

You'll be able to see if there's a package that doesn't get to the destination — you may experience packet loss — and how long it will take to get a response — perhaps the network is already saturated and the package takes time to reach their destinatio

n. The TRACERT command tracks the required route of a package to reach the destination and shows information about each hop along that route. For example, if you run tracert, you'll see information about each node interacting with the package on its way to reach our servers. If you're having trouble connecting to a website, tracert may show you where a problem occurred.
