How to troubleshoot your internet association for dsl or cable benefit - broadband-internet


One of the collective tribulations among internet users is tough their internet correlation to identify the exact problem. There is a big add up to of internet users who use DSL, and cable modem service.

You set us your link the way your ISP (internet advantage provider)instruct you to. Sometimes, it doesn't work for abundant reasons.

You ceremony is not ready, your hardware in not coupled properly, or your ISP is having problems.

Whatever the cause of the badly behaved maybe, there are some diagnostic tools you can use in Windows XP, in order to categorize the problem.

If you are not exact in your diagnostic, you will get a good idea at least.

Before we get to the diagnostic tools, let us chat about what is caught up in an internet connection.

The in rank travels over the internet to your cpu all the way through your ISP service. This is done all through a High speed modem then to a complex card installed in your computer.

Your laptop is called a host, your ceremony contributor will give you the DNS IP address, and you get your login and password. That is all what you have from your ISP.

Sometimes, your internet correlation fails, and you want to find out the problem. You may be able to fix it, or at least get some information about the conundrum to direct your isp for help.

You will start by accessing the appreciation at the appointed time by going in chain to:

Start menu, program, accessories, then be in charge prompt. A window will open where you type orders from the prompt.

At the be in charge prompt, you type: IPCONFIG. This authority will give you the committed exchange ideas correlation on your computer. Here is an example:

PPP adapter Copy :

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 68. 239. 158. 45
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255. 255. 255. 255
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 68. 239. 158. 45

The above crop was fashioned when I ran the Ipconfig be in charge on my own cpu administration Chance XP OS, and A DSL connection. The IP concentrate on is my mainframe deal with assigned by the ISP.

Please note, you can add an opportunity to this command, in order to get more full in sequence about your connection. Here is the output, when I ran the same appreciation with the "all" option.

Ipconfig /ALL

PPP adapter Copy :

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-53-45-00-00-00
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 68. 239. 158. 45
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255. 255. 255. 255
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 68. 239. 158. 45
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 151. 198. 0. 39 151. 197. 0. 39 NetBIOS over TCP/IP. . . . . . . . : Disabled

Notice now, the production includes the phisycal attend to of the arrangement crossing point card installed in my computer. Also, you see the DNS IP addresses. With the above information, I didn't have any problems.

Supposed ,I disconnect my DSL link and ran the be in charge again, this is the new result:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192. 168. 0. 1
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255. 255. 255. 0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Notice in this case, where I disconnected my connection, you don't get a DNS server. This tells you that I am not allied to the internet.

Also, announcement the IP adopt starts with 192. 168, which is the evade attend to every time your central processing unit is not coupled to the internet.

Another authority is the ping command. It will allow to check if a cpu is associated to the association and ready to communicate, whether intranet, or internet.

Once you run it,it will sent a box to the mainframe particular and gives the time it took for the envelope to travel. This is an a amount produced when I tried to ping www. yahoo. com:

C:>ping www. yahoo. com

Pinging www. yahoo. akadns. net [216. 109. 118. 66] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 216. 109. 118. 66: bytes=32 time=35ms TTL=55
Reply from 216. 109. 118. 66: bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=55

Ping info for 216. 109. 118. 66:
Packets: Sent = 4, Established = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 35ms, Ceiling = 39ms, Be an average of = 38ms.

That shows that the host was reachable, and attached to the internet.

A very crucial authority is the Nslookup. This will let you check if DNS (domain name server) is running properly. The behave of the DNS ma?tre d' is to convert ip addresses to field name of the networked computer. Here is an example:

C:> nslookup www. yahoo. com
Server: home5. bellatlantic. net
Address: 151. 198. 0. 39

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www. yahoo. akadns. net
Addresses: 216. 109. 118. 67
Aliases: www. yahoo. com

So, you enter the name after Nslookup, it will give you IP addresses and vice versa.

In summary, there more guidelines in Windows Xp, but using the three above orders must give you a good idea about your internet correlation problems. You can find where the badly behaved is occurring. Is it your machine, or the ISP.
