- Performing a Traceroute test on the Linksys X1000’s web-based setup page
Traceroute is used to "trace the route" across an Internet network from your home router to a remote location specified in the IP or URL address box.
Why is traceroute important?
Traceroute lists all routers and networks [that] the data passes through until it reaches the final IP or URL address. This helps determine how far data is getting to before it either fails or reaches its destination.
This article will discuss the steps on how to perform a traceroute test on the Linksys X1000’s web-based setup page. Follow the steps below to learn more.
Click the Administration tab.
Click the Diagnostics sub-tab.
In the Traceroute test section, enter the IP or URL address that you want to test.
The Traceroute screen will then appear if the test is successful. It will display the path that your packets pass through over the Internet.
Expanding your network
You can also extend the range of your wireless network, especially in situations that require you to do so. This is through the use of other networking devices from Linksys like switches, powerline adapters, wireless bridges and range extenders. More of the different devices you can use to extend your network can be read by clicking on the link below.
