Information

 
Question
What tools can I use to test connectivity in my SBG7580-AC?
Answer
The SBG7580-AC includes various tools that are used for troubleshooting IP connectivity issues.  The ping tool is used to check connectivity from the SBG7580-AC to another device on the Internet or the LAN (Local Area Network).  Using the ping feature, the SBG7580-AC 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 SBG7580-AC and that device are connected and able to communicate with each other.  This document describes how to use the ping tool.
