does anyone know the dos command for tracing web addresses through the network. I am not getting to certain web sites.
for instants: microsoft.com,dell.com,cnet.com,zdnet.com. these are sites I go to and use a lot,didn't have trouble before but now I can't reach them. called the cable company and he said the toruble was in my computer,said to reload win.98 in again. did that and still no go.called again and told them, said sounds like dns trouble in their system that they would check it out. been a week and still can't reach the sites.they had me trace the address through dos and found it only went 13 jumps and stopped. gave them the ip address it stopped at and haven't heard from them yet. been 3 more days. forgot the command they gave me to trace the jumps. was going to try it to see if they were even working on the problem.this is very flustrating not being able to get anywhere on the net. everything on my computer is working fine.thank you,Ron

IF it stops after 13 hops, it probably is not on your ISP's network.
The problem is probably on a server in between.

try getting to those sites using the applet on visualroute.visualware.com . If it works from there it has to be something local.
