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 .
