Not a huge deal, but ever since joining xnet back in october last year I've never been able to (as far as i can remember) trace to any server.
Here is an example of a trace.

Anybody else get this and is there a solution?

I have just used the Windows "tracert" command and it resolved about 10 hops before starting to timeout.  Don't know if being on a static IP makes any difference.
