  • Permanent timeout in traceroute

    Hey there!


    I'm using a router (WRT54GL) for a couple days now and beside the problem that my BC2 doesn't work (I do not think that it's a problem on my end since I've changed hw/sw configs several times) I keep getting a timed out unknown host in my traceroutes.
    It's always the second hop. First one's my router of course...



    What could that be? I don't think I got that timeout when I didn't use the router.

    The rest is working fine, internet is okay, gaming is okay (Except for BC2 -_-)


    Thanks in advance guys n girls :]

    It looks as if the second hop via your ISP and maybe has to do with IP routing tables not updated on the ISP routers?? Or could it be that there is a lot of traffic running on that hop and just rerouted to hop 3??

          Wait is your router on a static IP behind your modem? If so that's your second hop: your modem. I'd say something's wrong with your modem if you can't get a ping or IP resolve out of it. Try power cycling the thing (turning it off for 30 secs and turning it back on).

          It should resolve to an internal network IP (like 192.198.0.1) and should be less than 3 ms latency time (assuming it's not over 150 feet away).

            It's a static IP and yep the router is behind the modem.

            After a bit of research the timed out second hop seems to be both common and nothing to worry about.
            My provider just said that it's propably the second and extern network card of the router... Maybe my router blocks the trace on that hop... I have no idea :D

              Traceroute works using ICMP protocol. A low level way to query network equipment about its status. You can turn this off (sometimes for very good reason) in most network stuff. Your modem/router probably has ICMP support turned off. It doesn't mean anything, most people are just used to seeing it on all the time because most ISPs and backbones leave it on for troubleshooting.
