You have a good connection to the exchange, approx 7Meg, but by the time it gets to Xnet, it is only 3Meg. This means possibly congestion either on your exchange or on the handover to xnet.

I think this means you have not been switched over to Xnet's new back end yet, but it will come soon. So hang tight until this line changes, and see what you results are after that. Once you get a 6-7Meg result to Xnet's speedtest, then you can start looking beyond that, e.g. local sites, then international etc.

Did you open the command prompt (dos window) by itself first, then type the tracert command in the dos window? Or did you just type the command into the "run" button on the start menu?

I guess this isn't so flash then:

Tracing route to speedtest.xport.co.nz [58.28.5.8]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Not necessarily bad. Sometimes the pings don't get back from various parts of the trip, due to firewalls, what software you are running, operating system, routers limiting some of this traffic. However, since the last hop came back, it is obviously still reaching the destination. Try again with any firewalls etc you have switched off and see if it picks up the hops on the way. Here's mine:

Tracing route to speedtest.xport.co.nz [58.28.5.8]

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    44 ms    43 ms    44 ms  ip-58-28-15-31.wxnz.net [58.28.15.31]
  3    42 ms    42 ms    42 ms  ge-1-0-0-57-jcore3.wxnz.net [58.28.13.49]
  4    43 ms    43 ms    44 ms  ge-0-0-0-akl-core3.wxnz.net [58.28.8.7]
  5    43 ms    43 ms    43 ms  speedtest.xport.co.nz [58.28.5.8]

Trace complete.

There are 2 important things to note from this Trace Route display:

1)  You got a reply from the end-point (speedtest.xport.co.nz) as Coffeebaron has mentioned.
2)  The Ping time is low and stable.

For a more detailed analysis, I suggest you run WinMTR as found on the following Web Page:

Hmm still timing out despite disabling ZA's firewall.  Do I have to disable the router firewall too?

Could be worth a try. Also what operating system are you using. Do you have an other PC you can try this on? What type of router do you have? Also, try Grant's suggestion and download WinMTR.

I can tracert fine on Win XP & Vista, however I did have a similar issue as you when using WinMTR on Vista. So I guess it will be a bit of trial an error to get a complete tracert.
