    hey guys my inet went down and i did a ping to yahoo and it timed out, so i pinged my router and get this response

    Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=155

    then after inet went back up i pinged www.yahoo.com and get this response

    Reply from 68.142.226.43: bytes=32 time=85ms TTL=46


    i tested both places for the ping and it might be a nub question but i wanted to know why the ttl (timetolive) is higher on a packet that has virtually 2 feet to travel where one that must travel >10 miles has a very low ttl. replys with info would be nice

    I dont think you should be woried about TTL, the round trip is what i would be worried about. Your lan has a round trip <1ms and yahoo @ 85 ms. Seems decent to me but take my advice with a grain or two of salt.
