That seems to indicate a normal enough delay. The site may be relatively overloaded. There is also a possibility that the actual machine at that address might simply be a fowarding address to a Google site in the US. That's about a 6700 mile (10800 km) sort of delay time difference. So far that shows no packet loss. I'd run the pings for a longer time, say 100 pings or so, and look at the summary. If there are zero dropped packets then Google should seem normally responsive to you.
Thanks, Joanne. The whole issue started because I feel that the web is awfully slow on this machine. Clicking a link can take about half a minute until a webpage displays. However, online speed tests show that my connection is what it should be. It's not only google- it's the whole web, including local sites. Dotan Cohen http://gmail-com.com
