Win XP Internet Connection Sharing


I've got two PC's running windows XP home and have set up ICS, with file/print sharing, it's all working well and everything can see each other and share etc, my only query is when running a tracert from the client pc I get the following:-

Tracing route to []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 * * * Request timed out.
2 61 ms 62 ms 31 ms []
3 66 ms 31 ms 46 ms []
4 96 ms 30 ms 30 ms
5 18 ms 31 ms 31 ms []

6 18 ms 61 ms 31 ms [21]
7 19 ms 45 ms 63 ms
8 115 ms 31 ms 30 ms
9 31 ms 125 ms 30 ms
10 37 ms 62 ms 93 ms
11 69 ms 46 ms 31 ms

Trace complete.

If I run the tracert from the host pc the first line is fine, no timeouts etc, does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this, or is it usual and it's just I've never noticed it before?

The PC's are connected together(wireless) as a peer-to-peer network, no router involved, I did have it going via a router and the timeout still appeared.

I think the problem is at the host end, but what I have no idea Sad

I've run the network wizard on both PC's and it's still appearing, can anyone help? or shall I just live with it?

Thanks for any help you can give.
