By: Arie Slob

Included with Windows 95 is a program called Trace Route. Open a DOS window and type tracert location name. The location name can be any IP address or number, for example tracert The program will the trace the route from your Internet provider to that location, and show you every computer system along the way. Watch as you jump from coast to coast and over oceans via satellites and high speed connections instantly. Also very useful for when you can't connect to a site - it will show you if something is down along the way.
