You are fine to the router.. the first "hop"

Then look at 14.. 1000 ms... that is bs.. you might want to call roadrunner.. I know that Insite is having problems here in indiana.. and i think they own or are owned by roadrunner..

naww i get 7 mbp/s off my 5 mbp/s connection on my sony vaio O.o its gotta be my wireless...

if you are getting that type of speeds, wired,  with those types of pings on those routers i am going to be suprised!

I am willing to bet that it is road runner right now.. 

Looking at their network status..

Road Runner will be conducting Planned Maintenance on the IP network. Subscribers in the affected area(s) may have no connection to the Internet or latency/slow connectivity during this maintenance window. Our engineers are working quickly to complete this maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

x_6985381 that trace shows either a bad modem, or some serious network issues.

What is your RR domain?  (ie. [email protected]) ...I can help you find local network status.  Or are you in New England, like Swimmer posted?


Better yet, go to help.rr.com and select your provider, state and region.  If you don't get that option when you visit the page, click Reselect Your Local Area from the Quick Links section in order to do so.

Once your region is selected properly, click Network Status from the Quick Links.  This will show any relevant network outages or maintenance over that last while.

He is in new york state..  The IP is registered to VA.
