Tracert
I was trying to find out why my internet connection was SLOW. After doing some digging, I found Tracert, ran it, this is what I got back, From getnet.net TO 67.175.129.220. Traceroute to 67.175.129.220 (67.175.129.220), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets 1 daisy.getnet.net (216.19.223.119) 0.068 ms 0.013 ms 0.012 ms 2 phnx-gsr0.getnet.net (216.19.201.241) 0.436 ms 0.434 ms 0.419 ms 3 phnxaz1wce2-se2-1.wcg.net (65.77.92.41) 0.868 ms 0.865 ms 0.851 ms 4 anhmca1wcx2-pos14-2.wcg.net (64.200.240.21) 11.119 ms 11.264 ms 11.410 ms 5 anhmca1wcx3-pos6-0-oc192.wcg.net (64.200.140.158) 179.165 ms 179.280 ms 179.512 ms 6 64.200.249.122 (64.200.249.122) 19.034 ms 18.889 ms 18.982 ms 7 64.200.249.142 (64.200.249.142) 18.840 ms 19.081 ms 19.266 ms 8 te-3-3-71.car4.SanJose1.Level3.net (4.68.110.29) 19.533 ms 19.557 ms 19.666 ms 9 vlan99.csw4.SanJose1.Level3.net (4.68.18.254) 19.970 ms 27.682 ms 27.614 ms 10 ae-92-92.ebr2.SanJose1.Level3.net (4.69.134.221) 30.827 ms 24.710 ms 23.181 ms 11 ae-3.ebr1.Denver1.Level3.net (4.69.132.58) 56.745 ms 56.488 ms 53.070 ms 12 ae-1-100.ebr2.Denver1.Level3.net (4.69.132.38) 57.782 ms 57.501 ms 57.466 ms 13 ae-3.ebr3.Chicago1.Level3.net (4.69.132.62) 75.501 ms 75.378 ms 63.289 ms 14 ae-68.ebr1.Chicago1.Level3.net (4.69.134.57) 74.411 ms ae-78.ebr2.Chicago1.Level3.net (4.69.134.61) 64.160 ms 63.863 ms 15 ae-1-51.edge1.Chicago2.Level3.net (4.68.101.19) 63.688 ms 63.373 ms ae-1-55.edge1.Chicago2.Level3.net (4.68.101.147) 63.362 ms 16 COMCAST-IP.edge1.Chicago2.Level3.net (4.71.248.34) 64.162 ms COMCAST-IP.edge1.Chicago2.Level3.net (4.71.248.22) 63.877 ms COMCAST-IP.edge1.Chicago2.Level3.net (4.71.248.18) 64.142 ms 17 * * * 18 te-3-1-ur01.area4.il.chicago.comcast.net (68.87.230.94) 64.413 ms 64.399 ms 64.473 ms 19 * * * 20 * * * 21 * * * 22 * * * 23 * * * 24 * * * 25 * * * 26 * * * 27 * * * 28 * * * 29 * * * 30 * * * I understand what the read-out saids, but what I don't understand is where do I go from Here. Once the tracert STOP's ( on what ever hop It stop on). How do I get around these Servers?. So at the Ninimum I can get at lease 30 hop w/ 40 packets. rudolfocabrera@yahoo.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can not alter your hops as this is your ISP’s configuration. Sorry!

ahem…. these hops are outside of this user’s network and likely do not belong to his ISP but to some organization between his network and the destination. These hosts have ICMP blocked (which both ping & tracert use). Your network slowdown happens between hops 4 and 5. The tracert shows 179ms RTT. This is almost equivalent to crossing the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. It would be worth knowing where you are starting and where the destination host is located. This will give you an idea of about how long it should take for traffic to traverse the network. Pathping would be a good tool to test your path and see where packet loss and high latency would be between the source and destination.

    It looks like he's tracing from New York area to the Chicago Area. The hop that takes the big time increase is in Kansas I believe. There may be a problem with one of the routers in the path. Is your connection slow to all sites on the net or just one? Give us a little more details on your connection and who your trying to get to.
