Traceroute and ping issues...

I've run traceroutes and pings to multiple sites and I get the following...

I tried Google (which is shown), Yahoo, Microsoft, Dell, Facebook, hughes.net and Walmart.  Twitter was the only one that worked normally, with both a traceroute and ping.  

 

The goofy thing is that all of these sites work just fine for me.  I'm having no problems with them.

 

Any ideas of what could be going on?  I power cycled the modem, but it's still the same.

No clue, and I couldn't replicate it on my machine.

It's been bad today. Had a ton of problems updating MS stuff this morning. There must be a bad route somewhere.

It's still the same this afternoon.  I find it interesting that I can still use the net, as I figured those results would have meant that I couldn't get to those pages.

Well, as long as you can get to where you need to go... Smiley Happy

It's puzzling, though. I'm going to go the MJF way and blame CenturyLink and Chinese hackers. Smiley Happy

Century Link being the cause wouldn't surprise me.

Re: Traceroute and ping issues...

Someone mentioned here somewhere about things changing at 8am ET. Aside from the MS problems this morning, I have been noticing a problem with updating Homebrew in the morning, which uses a remote connection to GitHub.com. For the last bunch of weeks, the connection would start with a burst, then slow, then stop completely. Restarting doesn't fix the problem... until 8am when it works like nobody's business.

 

Now, there are a million and two reasons for this, such as some one coming into work at GitHub and rebooting a router or something first thing, but it's quite strange.

Re: Traceroute and ping issues...

Update:

 

Still no go, but I disabled IPv6 and tried pinging again.  While Dell, Microsoft, Hughes and Walmart still didn't work, Google, Yahoo and Facebook did.  Twitter still worked.  

 

Though I don't know if it will make any difference, I'm going to try to use HughesNet's DNS.  I'm going to change to it, clear my DNS, then restart everything to try.

 

Edit:  Well, changing the DNS was a complete waste of time, of course, but that it's working with some while using only IPv4 is interesting.

Re: Traceroute and ping issues...

No change as of today.  Still doing the same thing.  

 

Has anyone ever seen anything like that before, and where the sites still work without issue?  I don't know enough about the net to understand how that can happen.

Re: Traceroute and ping issues...

I've never seen this happen, but the interwebs have been getting curiouser and curiouser, so more like this is bound to happen, I guess.
