How do you perform a test of your network connection / internet connection?

  1. Click Start - Run.

  2. Type: cmd

  3. Hit Enter.

  4. Type: ipconfig /all to display your IP Network Configuration.
  5. You first step is to ping the Gateway of your network i.e. the router that connects your computer to the internet: ping

  6. Your next step is to ping the DNS Servers of your network: ping

  7. If you can ping both the Gateway and the DNS Servers, your next step is to test the DNS Resolution of the DNS Servers: nslookup

  8. If this resolves successfully, your network connectivity is most likely in proper working order.  If you are experiencing intermittent internet connectivity issues you can isolate the device that may be the issue by typing: trace
