Traceroute 1st hop always timing out

Every traceroute test I do always times out at the first hop, like this one I did to the BBC:

Quote
Tracing route to www.bbc.net.uk [212.58.224.116]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 * * * Request timed out.
2 22 ms 23 ms 23 ms lo0-plusnet.ptn-ag2.plus.net [195.166.128.53]
3 21 ms 22 ms 23 ms ge1-0-0-204.ptn-gw2.plus.net [84.92.3.106]
4 23 ms 21 ms 21 ms gi1-1-22.pte-gw5.plus.net [212.159.4.7]
5 26 ms 22 ms 24 ms rt-lonap-a.thdo.bbc.co.uk [193.203.5.90]
6 23 ms 23 ms 23 ms 212.58.238.129
7 23 ms 23 ms 23 ms www16.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.116]

Trace complete.


Recently moved from Pipex and it never did it with that connection. Anyone know why this is?

Traceroute 1st hop always timing out

That is your router/usb modem's hop and some do time-out in traceroutes and it is perfectly normal. I know that hop1 is your hardware because hop 2 is the PlusNet Juniper ERX gateway.
