We had earlier seen about the steps required for running trace route on Windows 8 system. And if you have got Mac OS X Lion, then you can use Network Utility tool to find out the trace route results.
Network Utility is available under Utilities, you can either use Launchpad or Spotlight to access this tool. In Network Tool, click the Traceroute tab and enter the network address to trace.
Clicking the Trace button should display the Traceroute details of network address and this would help you analyze more on the network issue.
