Bad Router?

Hi,
I've been with plusnet for a week now and so far its been a pleasent experience, especially considering the service I was getting with Sky Broadband Connect!
I've been a bit ping obsessed lately and runing lots of ping test/tracerts. On the whole I've been getting great results, but one thing I have noticed is that when doing tracerts I get quite a slow response time from the router. Some results are below:
Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
 1     5 ms    99 ms    99 ms  dsldevice.lan [192.168.1.254]
 2    22 ms    19 ms    21 ms  lo0-plusnet.pcl-ag03.plus.net [195.166.128.109]
 3    25 ms    20 ms    21 ms  gi1-6-703.pcl-gw01.plus.net [84.92.0.181]
 4    21 ms    28 ms    20 ms  te2-1.pcl-gw02.plus.net [212.159.1.114]
 5    20 ms    18 ms    19 ms  te2-2.thn-gw2.plus.net [212.159.0.190]
 6    21 ms    18 ms    20 ms  rt0.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.239.25]
 7    18 ms    23 ms    17 ms  212.58.238.149
 8    16 ms    18 ms    16 ms  virtual-vip.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138]
Trace complete.
Are these normal results (I've also attached an image from pingplotter)?
I have the Thomson TG585 v7 router from Plusnet (brand new) and I'm currently on Plusnet Pro.
Thanks,
Mike.

Re: Bad Router?

I'm guessing you are using wireless - any chance of checking what it looks like wired?

I don't think you have anything to worry about:
