    This is almost fine, just one or two timing out. How do I stop it pinging!!!!

    This would then leave a potential DNS or connectivity problem. An easy solution would be to change your DNS servers (within Internet Protocol Properties). Set a static IP (if you wish but not necessary), then change your DNS server entries to:

    Code:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    This is certainly better so will leave it on this machine for now. Thanks.

    Just close the command window. I don't believe there's any other way

    Pathping is good and is a little more informative than tracert. I've found a good article for those interested.

    Thanks both. Managed to stop the ping. Found a Technet library article about pathping, which gives the options but only some of the reasons for certain results.

    Useful command though I am pouring over the resulting lists. Seems I'm dropping packets left right and centre on very nearly every hop. Don't know what that signifies exactly, must do some more reading. (as if I haven't enough to do already) Currently reading the manual (!!!) for my router to make sure it's set up properly

    These days responding to pings isn't seen as a priority for a lot of net routers i.e. if they've got better things to do with their time, they'll just drop them (and five minutes later and a bit less stressed maybe they'll respond).

    I guess so Is there another way of checking what's happening on my connection?

    Your firewall is blocking the Ping (ICMP) packets.

    Is it possible to do something like this on the internal network so that when trying to do an nslookup that nslookup will not work with regards to resolving network device hostnames to ip addresses or visa versa regardless of whether its a photocopier, computer or whatever ??

    So take it if nslookup does not work on copiers ie resolving hostnames to ip addresses and visa versa then the copier(s) have or has not registered with dns or has had said A host records deleted out of dns?
