Trouble Shooting Network Connectivity tutorials

  • In this topic we will discuss about various tools that can be used to diagnose and trouble shoot network connectivity.

    • Event Viewer

    • Windows Network Diagnostics

    • IPConfig

    • Ping

    • Tracert

    • Nslookup

    • Pathping


Event Viewer

  • Event viewer is one of the component of Microsoft Operating System.

  • It is available since Windows NT since its release in 1993.

  • Event viewer is centralized log service that report events that have taken place, such as a failure to start component, services and application.

  • When any such error happens, Window records the event in appropriate event log.

  • You can view log for Application, Security, Setup and System log, look for errors, and diagnose it.


Windows Network Diagnostics

  • Windows Network Diagnostics can be used to diagnose and correct networking problems.

  • When network problem happens, executing Windows Network Diagnostics will show you possible description of problem and possible solutions.

  • However some solutions might need manual interaction to resolve problems.



  • Stands for Internet Protocol Configuration.

  • This command display current TCP/IP configuration for IPv4, IPv6, DHCP and other details.

  • It can be used to review and renew IP details, and flush DNS resolver cache.



  • This is very useful command, used to check connectivity of current computer to another TCP/IP device.

  • Ping sends and receives ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) Echo request message and display statistics in terms of bytes sent, time taken and so on.

  • Keep in mind that Firewall or Virus Scanner might block ICMP request.



  • This stands for Trace Route.

  • Tracert determines the path route to destination by sending ICMP echo request.

  • It will display list of router interfaces between Source and Destination.

  • It will also display which router failed, what is speed or latency.



  • This is similar to Tracert.

  • It is a tool that combines feature of Ping and Tracert with additional details.

  • It sends packets to each router on the way to a final destination over given period of times.

  • Then it calculates results based on packets received from each hop.

  • It then shows the degree of packet loss at given router or link.

  • This can help to pinpoint which router or link is causing network problem.

  • For example pathping -n demopc1



  • Nslookup is network tool that is used to obtain information about internet server.

  • You can use it to confirm connection to DNS server and verify that the required records exist.
