Good Morning I hope you can help me with my question. I have a Cisco 827 ADSL router. The dsl line went down the other day. I still was able to ping the internet because we have a backup line so when I did a trace ip; it showed it was going out the other line. The DSL line is back online now; but when I do a tracert still it shows it going out the other line; If I change my gateway( on my pc) I'm able to go out the DSL line but I need to know how can I force a "ping" to go out the DSL line so I could know whether is down or not? or how would you approch this issue to find out if DSL is down? Thank You.
