How do I run a traceroute?
Traceroute is a utility that records the route (the specific gateway computers at each hop) through the Internet between your computer and a specified destination computer. It also calculates and displays the amount of time each hop took. This can aid you in ascertaining if there is network latencies, and possibly where such latencies maybe occurring.

- Type cmd and then press the OK button to open a command prompt.
- At the prompt, type tracert yourdomain.com or IP address and press the Enter key.
