  • First hop ping is really high!
When you run a line test, you may get something like this:

Your first hop ping stream of 40byte pings to xx.xx.xxx.xx
100% loss | unknown reason | You are 87ms to your first hop!
Don't be alarmed. Your ISP might have a "private domain", so you get a 100% loss with a high first hop ping.

To test your first hop, do a trace route to your favorite website in MS-DOS prompt.

tracert yahoo.com

Tracing route to yahoo.com []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 10 ms 10 ms 10 ms xx.xxx.xx.xxx
