Hi, this is Jeff Hicks. Today I want to show you a few networking tools that I think every help desk and Windows administrator should know. These are things that will help you verify the network health and integrity of you desktop computers. It’s been my experience that if your computers pass these tests, you will have fewer problems. Let me go through some of them here.
I also put together a script that you can download called Get-NetworkStatus that will run through a lot of checks and return a custom object.
Wowie Zowie! What a great article! I only have a home network with Win2008, but ... still. When my network is back up (moved from CA to AZ in June, new house did not have Ethernet!), I'm going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing!
