    An "average" number of hops is 12-15. I'm currently at 17, so it'll probably take me a little while to switch.
    I'm still 14 hops away. I guess that makes me average Hopefully, I'll make it to the new server tomorrow!

    I use Yahoo and IE and my browser. Both were slow and both say I'm on the old server.

    Please advise what I should do.
    You just have to wait. There's nothing you can do to speed up changing to the new server. The internet works in its own time, and the buckets have to be handed along at their own pace.

    Well, it's pretty easy to tell which server you're on. Look at the graphic at the top of this thread, or in my sig line. It doesn't get much easier.

    Thanks, John! I think I'm at 13. It gets to there and the window closes. I keep picturing Mickey, Goofy, and Donald on bucket brigade.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    If you're just typing it in the "run" section, it'll close. If you click on Start/Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt, then it won't.

    But 13's probably right. Note that your number of hops and the route it takes will change any time a server down the line goes off-line for maintenance, or gets slower than other routes, so it changes quite a bit from hour to hour.

    Over 30? That's awful. Hopefully, the new server will be less hops for you, and things overall will be much quicker than they were on the old server.
