Trace complete.
Hey Freezy,

The trace looks good. The 100% packet loss on Hops 2 and 14 are probably intentional, as those routers are set to not respond to traces.

What I'd do in your case is bypass the router temporarily, and connect straight to the modem, and see if there's a difference in game.
