    Network question here<-

    I'm usually consider myself fairly computer literate but I had a question about my route table.

    What is the MS TCP loopback interface?

    that loops TCP back to your machine ping 127.0.0.1. that sends echo out and back to your machine.

    This loopback is useful when you are troubleshooting a faulty connection to your LAN. The first thing is to try and ping your computer. Depending of your Windows OS it make look something like this:

    c:\windows\ping loopback, or, c:\windows\ping 127.0.0.1. Both work the same.

    If you see something like this:

    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
    Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=1ms TTL=32

    This means that your TCP/IP configuration is correct. If not, you need to check your settings and reinstall your TCP/IP protocol via the control panel.
