I'm have a Linksys WRT54G v5 router and a Prestige 660ME-61 DSL modem. The WRT54G is running firmware v1.00.6 (this problem was happening with v1.00.4 as well). When I do a trace route the first hop is always reported as the destination. For example, from the XP command prompt... tracert www.yahoo.com Tracing route to www.yahoo.akadns.net [126.96.36.199] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms p1.www.re2.yahoo.com [188.8.131.52] 2 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 192.168.2.1 3 41 ms 41 ms 41 ms xxxxxx.dhcp.sprint-hsd.net [xxxxxx] The first hop should be reported as 192.168.1.1 which is the address of the router. The second hop reports correctly as the DSL modem. This really plays havoc with my trace route mapping program! Since it happens there to, I suspect its just being reported wrong. Anybody have any ideas why its doing this? Note: I asked Linksys Support about this directly and I got some sort of pre-fab form about checking everything. Everything else works, I already know this. Told them so, but they've never responded since. The noive of 'em.
