You will need to open a command prompt:
- For Windows go to Start and select all programs. From there select accessories, and then click to open Command Prompt.
- Once in the command prompt window type ping www.google.com –t
- Let the ping test run for as long as desired. Hit Ctrl + C on the keyboard to stop the test and bring up the ping statistics. It will show packets sent, received, and then a percentage of lost packets. Lost packets could indicate an intermittent internet connection. A test with zero percent loss would indicate a stable internet connection.
