Without being able to see the IPs I'm not sure where hop 2 is located. If it's an internal network IP it could be part of the same issue that's affecting hop 1. If it's an external IP, it might point to an issue with the infrastructure in your area. 

 

The 100% packet loss means that hop just didn't respond to the ping. Some datacenters don't respond to pings at all for security reasons, so seeing 100% packet loss on a trace route isn't unusual. 

 

The lack of an entry for hop 7 could point to closed network ports. Sometimes that can cause hops to time out when you run a trace route.

Hey @APeXNECTAR

 

Looking at the UO Trace I can see some packet loss happening on the first hop. This would be the connection from your PC to your home router/modem. If there's packet loss happening on that first hop, there might be a connection issue within your home network. 

 

What type of internet connection are you using? If it's a wifi connection, would it be possible to try connecting with a network cable instead? That way we can rule out any wifi signal issues as the reason for the packet loss.

i have to run the tests on my laptop which doesn't have an ethernet port, the 1-2% packet loss doesn't show up on most of the traces i run, would the packet loss on hop 1 to 2 be the cause as to why hop 7 doesn't work at all and hop 8 is showing 100% packet loss on every test?
