    I believe you can use the Network Utility (in the Utility folder) to do that. There must also be a way to do the same thing using Terminal, but I don't know about that.

    Open up /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app

    traceroute is the command you're looking for

    try ipconfig in terminal

    Whatever Windows command line does, Unix does better. If there is a command you want type the windows command and then 'unix' into google. Like 'ipconfig unix'.
