some hops might time out, unfortunately some firewalls these days block icmp.
if they do make sure your router or a software firewall dosnt block icmp or ping.
Hi I have a Dell Dimension 4600 w/ XP and when I ping google.com, it takes 84ms. However when I test the ping on a inspiron 531 w/ Vista, I get 24ms. Both are hardwired. Could it be the ethernet card, or outdated ethernet drivers, or just an old computer?
