    What does arp do? Type in arp -a. What is in your arp cache? What does this tell you about the path of your pings to Yahoo and Google?
    Assume you cannot ping "www.hawaii.com". Type in tracert "www.hawaii.com". What if this trace only got as far a Los Angelos and then quit. What are some possible reasons that packets only got as far as LA?
