hi gautam,

if i understand your question correctly. there might be drops of packets

on the path the packet travels

so make sure the path the packets travels

does not have congestion

your question is very specific

pls specify

where the source you originate the ping ?

destination ?

any intermediate devices in the path ?

how u say 500 datagrams ?

is it size of packet used in ping ?

If your are pingen to and public network, DSL, Frame Relay. Check the mtu size of your outside network.
