Join Joli Ballew for an in-depth discussion in this video Use pathping to troubleshoot network connectivity, part of Windows 10: Networking.
- [Instructor] If you've tried the ping and tracert commands…while troubleshooting a network connectivity problem…and didn't get the resolution you desired from either,…you can use the two together, with the command pathping.…Pathping provides you with the route to any remote host…and pings it.…The results include information about the routers…along the way and the roundtrip time value,…as well as link-loss information.…Here's how to use pathping in a PowerShell window.…I'll type pathping www.linkedin.com and press enter.…
For demonstration purposes,…we'll speed this up a little bit,…but know it might take three or four minutes…for this to complete on your end.…As with tracert, you'll see the hops…the data takes to get to the destination address.…As with ping, you'll get information…about how much time each hop took…and how many packets were sent or lost during transmission.…If you get a destination host unreachable message,…it could be because the local system or a remote router…has no way to get to the destination.…
