Ping ?

New to ADSL so can someone explain what a Ping is that others are surrering with. (more importantly will I need to rub any cream on after experiencing a Ping?)

RE: Ping ?

Ping is a utility to determine whether a specific IP address is accessible. It works by sending a packet to the specified address and waiting for a reply. PING is used primarily to troubleshoot Internet connections.

RE: Ping ?

They fixed the 800ms+ ping problem, that was a seperate problem to this annoying 80-120ms ping problem you, me and so many others are still suffering from at peak time. Sad

Was just about to post a tracert with my 80ms+ pings but it's gone back to normal now (11:30pm). From 3pm to at least 11pm it was 100ms & above
