what command do you type in to determine the hop count destination?
I suggest merging Hop count into this article, since the hop count is just the number of hops. It seems pointless to have a separate article on the number of hops.--Srleffler (talk) 01:25, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I have changed the introduction since it contradicted the picture. There are some (unreliable?) sources that refer to hop as a "jump" from one router to the next, however, more commonly the hop is either referred to as the router/gateway itself, see cisco, or as the "Jump" from one network segment/subnet to the next (as the illustration shows). I have also removed the word "bridges" since it is a L2 device is not involved with IP routing. Instead I have added L3 switches which can act like a simple router.
