      Re: trace route

      Each hop is a system or router between you and where you are tracing to. The response times you get back is the latency betwen sending/recieving packets between you and the device. You will also see either a IP address or a hostname. if theres no name then it usually means there is none available via DNS.

      Some devices are set to not respond to ICMP (pings) so you will just get a time out message. Others may respond to the first ping but then * out after, this isnt always an idication of a problem sometimes the system just discards the packet for watever reason.

      Edit: Just to a the 1st hop is the internal IP of your home router/modem, hops 2, 3 (maybe more) after will usually be DNS servers/routers etc on the 02 network in your case.

      If you are timing out on the 2nd hop this means something is wrong between your router and your exchange. I am not sure what 10.1.2.157 signifies, but it is not a server address. Maybe someone else has come across this.

      Re: trace route

      first packet was also lost on that step as well so I am wondering if that is a mis-reported IP address.

      Although I would say there is something freaky happening between the router and the internet with a load of packets lost.

      Try it again and see if it plays ball.

      Re: trace route

      That is why I wonder if 10.1.2.157 is some sort of re-routing instruction.
