Four Steps to Test an IP Connection With Ping
by Hiroshi on March 14th, 2009
You can test IP connection using ping in many ways:
- Ping the loopback address to verify that TCP/IP is installed and configured correctly on the local computer.
Click start – run and write following command:
ping 127.0.0.1 -t
- Ping the IP address of the local computer to verify that it was added to the network correctly.
ping 192.168.0.22 -t
- Ping the IP address of the default gateway to verify that the default gateway is functioning and that you can communicate with a local host on the local network.
ping 192.168.0.1 -t
- Ping the IP address of a remote host to verify that you can communicate through a router.
