How to Troubleshoot Network Connections with Pathping Command

Pathping is a Windows based command-line tool used to provide information about the path data takes to its intended destination, network latency and network loss at intermediate hops between a source and destination. The pathping command works like a combination of Ping and Tracert commands.

Execute Pathping command from the Command Prompt, like this: pathping target, where target is either a hostname or an IP address.

Code:

pathping  dost-tech.com

You then get a two-part report: first a list of every hop along the route to the destination, and then statistics about each hop, including the number of packets lost at each hop.

Pathping command uses switches for example:

Code:

pathping -n -w 1000 dost-tech.com
