SBG10: Ping Tool

« Go Back


What tools can I use to test connectivity in my SBG10 gateway?
The troubleshooting Ping tool is used to check connectivity from the SBG10 to another device on the Internet or the LAN (Local Area Network).  Using the ping feature, the SBG10 sends a small packet of data to a device, and waits for a reply from that device.  If the device replies, this confirms that the SBG10 and that device are connected and able to communicate with each other.  This document describes how to use the Ping tool.
