Regardless of whether you need to check the association between the switch and the PC or check your Internet association, Windows has a helpful utility called Command brief, which empowers the client to perform various undertakings utilizing different directions. In spite of the fact that this goes past the abilities of the normal client, it is in every case great to realize how to do the initial two thing with the assistance of the purported ping order. The following couple of passages will clarify the ping order and how to do it legitimately.
How to ping your switch?
To ping your switch first you need to know its default IP address. Finding the switch’s IP and the ping order are executed through the Command brief, so the methodology is as per the following.
First you need to open up the Command Prompt. In Windows 7, you need to type CMD in the Search enclose the Start menu and press Enter on the console.
At the point when the Command Prompt opens, so as to discover what is the default IP of your switch, you need to type the accompanying direction “ipconfig”. Search for the part router 192.168.0.1 which says Default portal. This is your switch IP address. By and large it begins with 192.168. For instance, in the event that you possess a Linksys switch this number ought to be 192.168.1.1.
The subsequent stage is to ping the switch. While the Command Prompt is as yet open sort the accompanying order:
Ping 192.168.1.1 – t
A few sources recommend pinging the switch without the – t switch toward the end. How about we see what is the contrast between these two.
Pinging with or without – t
On the off chance that you are in uncertainty whether to utilize the – t switch or not, read the accompanying and choose.
When you ping the switch’s IP address without the – t switch toward the end (ping 192.168.1.1), the ping direction will send 4 parcels of information to the switch and you will get 4 reactions. By and large this is sufficient to demonstrate whether the issue is between the switch and the PC.
Then again, when we include the – t switch toward the finish of the ping order (ping 192.168.1.1 – t), the quantity of parcels sent to the switch is inconclusive, which implies the bundles will be sent until the client intrudes on this direction. This order is hindered in two different ways:
Ctrl + C – this will stop the pinging totally
Ctrl + Break or Ctrl + Pause – this will stop the pinging for a couple of moments, surrender the rundown to that point and after that proceed
Breaking down the aftereffects of the ping direction can be fairly precarious. Be that as it may, preferably you ought to get a similar number of sent bundles and have 0% of lost parcels. This implies all is well.
Utilizing the “ping 192.168.1.1 – t” then again called Continuous or Extended Ping direction is there to enable you to check for potential web network or switch issues. As should be obvious, you can do this in no time flat and you may get the thought regarding what is happening right then and there. Out it an attempt. You don’t have anything to lose!
