Connection Speed

Go to Start.Programs.MS-DOS Prompt.  At the prompt type: ping www.pcworld.com (or another remote web site).   Ping reports time in milliseconds it takes a data packet to travel to the site and return to your computer.  A few milliseconds is a fast connection.  Several hundred milliseconds is a slow connection.  Try: ping www.cylink.com.cy to try an international connection.  Try your own ISP: ping www.myisp.com .  Try your own URL: ping www.myurl.com .  If the connection speed between your ISP and your own URL is significantly different, you may have a problem.  Type ping -n 25 www.myisp.com and ping -n 25 www.myurl.com .  Save the files and send them to your ISP.
