Windows 7: 10.160.33.1

10.160.33.1

Since I'm periodically getting slow connections while downloading certain files, I ran a tracert to see if I could figure out what is going on. Every hop is much longer than it should be, but the one that confuses me most is the second in the results shown:

It is sandwiched in between my network and my ISP. I tried to Google it, but found nothing that actually identifies it. The only thing between the network and the ISP is my router, but I don't recall that IP being used. Does anyone know what it is?

The second hop is the CMTS or headend of your ISP.

Cable modem termination system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

With numbers like that there is either a problem with it of the node you're on is overloaded. Only thing you can do is contact Cox and get them to fix it, there is nothing you can do on your end.

Address space 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255 being private addresses makes your tracert seem a bit odd. I mean the first step is your router, so what's that second one with a private address? Somehow it makes me think you are using cable internet?

To compare, here's tracert to the same address from my rig just now. The second jump is directly from my router to my ISP:

10.160.33.1-tracert_102.png

I really can not think of any reason why you have that extra jump there?

EDIT: OK, Stormy explained it.

Thanks, it doesn't surprise me that it is my ISP, I kind of thought that it was anyway. It does raise a couple more questions...am I correct to assume that the all of the slow hops after that one are caused by the bottleneck at the CMTS? I don't know that it would do any good to contact Cox about it, because I feel that they are doing it on purpose, because they dislike the amount of data usage of my account. It seems to only occur when I'm using certain websites, and even then either on a random basis, or after I have gone a ways into a series of downloads from it.

Yes it is. Got any neighbors on Cox as well? If so and you can get them to test and see if they are also getting the high ping at the CMTS.

Thanks for explaining it, never used a cable connection so I was unfamiliar with this.

It's not that it isn't there, it is that Comcast has it configured so that the CMTS doesn't show in a tracert.
