How can I perform a traceroute?

Traceroutes can be extremely beneficial when attempting to debug/diagnose possible network related issues. Unfortunately, performing a traceroute differs by Operating System. Look for your specific Operating System for instructions below.

Windows 7

  1. Click the Start Menu (button)
  2. Inside the Search tool (Search programs and files) type 'cmd'.
  3. The only result should be the correct relevant Windows Command Prompt.
  4. At the command prompt, type 'tracert' with the IP address or domain in which you are attempting to determine the trace. For this example, we will trace to google.com
    • tracert google.com
  5. This provide a complete break down of how google.com is being reached from your current location.

OS X

Coming Soon Stay tuned.
