This repeats three times then...
Ping Statisticsnfor 127.0.0.1
Packets sent=4, Received=4 lost =0(0%lost)
Approximate round trip times in milli seconds:
Minimum =Oms, Maximum=1ms, Average= 0ms

The same thing happens for the other ping number.

What do these numbers determine?

Think radar...you are sending a packet to an interface and if the interface works, it responds back.

Pinging 127.0.0.1 is sending a packet to your own machine. If it works, the tcpip is working.

If you can ping a remote machine, then then you have access to the internet since this 207.68.127.254 is www.msn.com

Now I want to see if you can hit a web url.

type the following

ping www.msn.com
