The tracert command tracks the route a package needs to reach a destination and displays information about each hop on that route.
For example, start tracert softwareok.de , then you will see server information about every node point on the network. If you have trouble connecting to a Website, tracert can show you where the problem is.
Here at the Fritz box is only 2 milliseconds, so everything is OK! ( Orang marked)
If too long a wait (> 50 ms) in the Fritz box, or other nodes, a restart of the router, or the Fritz box, could help. The third node is your provider (here 8 milliseconds).
Too long waiting time (> 50 ms) to the provider AT&T Internet, CenturyLink, Verizon High Speed Internet, or others, (Red marked) could be a technical problem. A simple call to your local Internet service provider can solve the problem. With a request for a port check of their connection. Or a port reset.
A restart of the router is usually sufficient, but then repeat the measurement sometimes in 1-2 hours, often it is that there is just maintenance work, or a general temporary overload.
