How to check my Latency

Recommended Posts

I need to know how to check my tracert.  I went to this website and i need to give my tracert.  I have Cox internet and it tells me to go into start>run>command and i go there and it tells me to type in a web adress or sumpthing it's hard to explain.  If someone would give me a detailed "how to" on how to check my tracert.  Thanks

go to

start>run

type cmd and click OK

a black window comes up

type

tracert testmy.net

press enter

and it is done :D

Q: How do I do a tracert?

      A: Click Start/Run and enter cmd (or command depending upon your OS) and click the OK button. In the dos box (the black box that opens up) type tracert followed by the site you want to tracert to e.g. tracert testmy.net and press the enter key.

      To copy the result, right click in the window and from the pop-up menu click select all and press enter on the keyboard. The contents are now on the clipboard and can be pasted into a post or any application that will accept text. If you do not want the entire contents of the window, you can click mark instead of select all, then click and drag across the portion you want to copy. While the desired content is highlighted, press the enter key. Now the selected text is on the clipboard.

      Another alternative is to Click Start/Run and enter cmd /k tracert testmy.net. You may substitute whatever site you wish to use in place of testmy.net. Use the instructions in the paragraph above to copy the result.

the recommed way to get ur latency would be to download something that will utilise all ur connection for like 1min or so

and do a tracert while doing that HUGE download

this should be on the 60 to 100 ms the 1st hop from you to the next place

Hey i'm just checking to make sure in J79ZLR'S cable nut settings i was wondering it says

"Enter your connections download and upload caps in kilobits per second (kbps), and enter in your expected latency if you know

what it is" 

and i was wondering when he say's Enter your connections download and upload caps in kilobits per second; when he say's caps

does he mean when i check my speed like the download test or does he mean what i am capable of doing provided by my cable

company like 5mbps down and 2mbps up.

quote from http://dslnuts.com/tips_tricks.shtml

RWIN & BIT CALCULATOR

Here

Proper TcpReceiveWindow Formula:

(Maxium Bandwidth x Maxium Anticipated Latency) / 8

Example of a Cable connection with a 1500 download cap with an Anticipated Latency of 100 ms:

(1500 x 100) / 8 = 18750  To make it a multipule of MSS divide by 1460:

18750 / 1460 = 12.84246  Then round up to the nearest even whole number:

14 x 1460 = 20440     

This is what is sometimes called the base TcpReceiveWindow value. From here it can be increased to take advantage of Windows Scaling if the value is 65535 or greater.

18980 x 2 = 40880

18980 x 3 = 61320

18980 x 4 = 81760  MAX TcpReceiveWindow

*Remember when calculating for your optimum TcpReceiveWindow that latency can possibly rise as high as 300-500ms during a large download and if your TcpReceiveWindow is at least as large as your caps X 500 then no increase in it will produce a faster speed. A HUGE TcpReceiveWindow DOES NOT increase your download speed at all, a value larger than defaults is always better but there is a point at which you will not increase your speed with increasing this value.

To get your maximum anticipated latency ping about 10 of you favorite sites. To ping a site open a command prompt and type - ping www.speedguide.net (for example).

Speed Test

Here. Choose the location nearest to you and do 10 tests clearing your temp files after each one and use the average of the top 5.

VanBuren :)
