The Loaf: Uhh, why are you forcing the trace to use IPv6? Most people won't get past their own home router doing that.
alexjoss: Please explain in Engrish
Gunny Walker: alexjoss: Please explain in EngrishOkay, so a Ping is where you send a message to a remote computer or server to send back a response. Then you use the response time to gauge how slowly the network is running.A traceroute is the similar, but it hits every router along the way. This shows WHERE the network is running slowly. Then you can say things like, "Looks like Comcast has a screwed up router in Georgia. That's why the internet is so slow. It's out of our network and I can't fix it, boss."This guy has placed a router behind a bunch of other routers so that you have to go through them to get to it. This shows every router's name along the way which lends to comical effect.
cretinbob: Is this the same one from last week?
