I am running a Slack 9.1 box [well, mobile-box ]. I am connected to my Linksys BEFSR41 Router and from there to the ADSL modem and out in the wild.

Whenever I run traceroute I only get

1 * * *
2 * * *

etc...

I left it on for more hops, but no change. I am wondering if anybody can help me at all with this, it really is a problem sometimes.

I also noticed that I was ftp-ing into somebody's server and when I ran ls it would just freeze. Is that related, maybe? I am thinking about the router, but I have no problem with the Internet. aMSN transfers [when I send] do not work, but online uploads work too. Again, I am thinking router. Any help is appreciated, at least for traceroute, I might be able to extrapolate from there on.

Thank you for your time!
