I read here about "Pinging" and "Trace Route" testing of signals and
connections. I understand what a ping is or does and the trace route
seems reasonably clear.

Can someone direct me to infommation on what commands are used/given
to accomplish these tests?

When I have "pinged" in the past, I have done this as a DOS command
which raises the question is there a windows interface for these
tests, or does one just open a command window? (I have Windows XP
Home as my OS)

I think your gui interface is Start-> Run ping 24.92.155.132
down side you have to read fast to get the last few lines. :)

cmd will work with ping, tracert.

There are some third party tools out there like ping plotter

Gordon:

Open a Command prompt (COMMAND or CMD from start --> run)

Type; ping -?
This will provide the commandline switches to the PING command.

Type; tracert -?
This will provide the commandline switches to the Trace Route command.

PING Example:
ping -a yahoo.com

Pinging yahoo.com [66.218.71.198] with 32 bytes of data:
