Windows Trace Route -- network packet loss, trip time, etc

I want to switch to VOIP phone lines.

What "Trace Route" do you recommend
to see possible network packet loss,
trip time under 75 milliseconds, etc ?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Windows' built-in traceroute and ping tools will both show you round-trip times in ms, as well as packet loss.

What additional functionality are you looking for beyond these?

RingCentral has few tools you can use to see if you connection can handle VoIP:

Those are great tools to predict your line capacity.

Hope it helps!


I just recently came across this program a week ago called Win-MTR found here:

It is a standalone executable that you input the hostname ( or an IP address and let it run.  According to the WIKI, this is what it does:

MTR probes routers on the route path by limiting the number of hops individual packets may traverse, and listening to responses of their expiry. It will regularly repeat this process, usually once per second, and keep track of the response times of the hops along the path.

You can let it run for however long you would like, and it will show you a percentage of loss on each next-hop router.

Hope this helps.
