Traceroute on Drugs

Many people overlook the fact that windows does actually have some useful utilities built into its systems. The other day I came across a utility called "pathping". Pathping is a utility that runs just like traceroute, but provides much more information to the user; such as percentage of packets lost on a given hop and specific host information.

This built in utility is command line based and is great for determining where there is packet loss inside a network. If you get some time play around with it. It is much more powerful than it seams.
