    If you know how to ping, you can use www.dnsstuff.com to compare your findings to theirs. If they have the same results as you, then it is probably the site. If it is just you having problems, then it could be your ISP.

    Ping is executed from the DOS prompt. Just put the web site as a parameter after the command:

    Code:
    C:\>ping www.novell.com
    
    Pinging www.novell.com [130.57.4.27] with 32 bytes of data:
    
    Reply from 130.57.4.27: bytes=32 time=47ms TTL=51
    Reply from 130.57.4.27: bytes=32 time=111ms TTL=51
    Reply from 130.57.4.27: bytes=32 time=351ms TTL=51
    Reply from 130.57.4.27: bytes=32 time=103ms TTL=51
    
    Ping statistics for 130.57.4.27:
        Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
        Minimum = 47ms, Maximum = 351ms, Average = 153ms
    
    C:\>
    Then go to DNSstuff and have their site ping.

    that's such a good idea. i used dnsstuff yesterday to check a site but i used traceroute to see what was happening at the last few hops, i didn't even check to see if the last 2/3 routers were the same as the ones i was using :rolleyes: i'll use your method next time.

    i like to use Pingplotter too on windows, it shows where the slowdown is.
