PING allows you to test for basic connectivity to another computer or
network device. In theory, if you can PING something, then you are
connected to it. Pinging helps to eleiminate physical connectivity
issues and insures that traffic is being routed or relayed correctly.

You can also use Ping to resolve an IP address.
For instance, if I wanted to know the IP address of abc.com....

C:\Documents and Settings\Harrison>ping abc.com

Pinging abc.com [199.181.135.201] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 199.181.135.201: bytes=32 time=129ms TTL=242
Reply from 199.181.135.201: bytes=32 time=128ms TTL=242
Reply from 199.181.135.201: bytes=32 time=130ms TTL=242
Reply from 199.181.135.201: bytes=32 time=129ms TTL=242

Ping statistics for 199.181.135.201:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 128ms, Maximum = 130ms, Average = 129ms

Not really, ping only looks at a destination (not quite true) and says
it's (un)reachable (not quite true). As the connection between your PC
and say a website may involve 15 (or so) intermediate steps the fault
could be anywhere along the route.

See the BY page on this,
http://help.blueyonder.co.uk/html/connected/trace.shtml

There are also some BY newsgroups to try,

for technical faults / cm connection loss -
blueyonder.support.access.hi-speed

for self-help other users/BY tech -
blueyonder.users.self-help
or
blueyonder.users.self-help.networking

reporting satisfaction with service -
blueyonder.feedback

General BY/NTL/BT CM info

see the link for the BY/NTL/BR speed tester as well.

Saying what you can use it for isn't an answer to his first question, which was
"what does that mean"

What does living in the US have to do with anything?

When you fill out a questionnaire, do you place your answers underneath the
questions, or do you write all your answers at the top of the page?

Something Mara posted earlier:-

"A newsgroup is an already existing community of people into which you have just
walked.
Many of the people posting regularly there have been doing so for a long
time, they will have established relationships with each other, many will be
friends offline. It is up to you to fit in with them, not for them to adapt to
suit you. Before you post your first message, lurk for a while. Forget any bad
ideas you might have about the word 'lurk' - online it simply means to read
without posting. By doing this, you will get a feel for the culture of the
group, who the regular posters are, who is likely to be friendly, who is likely
to be rude, what the group regards as acceptable in terms of thread drift,
off-topic posts etc. Every newsgroup is different so get a feel for the culture
before jumping in."
