I've been having an intermittent problem with international bandwidth.
The problem will last for hours and then 'magically' go away. I forget
about it after a while and go on with my life.
Since yesterday it's happening again.. I either wait forever for an
overseas site to load or they just time out. In an effort to see where
the problem is I installed traceroute but, traceroute isn't working.
traceroute to iol.co.za (220.127.116.11), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
1 * * *
2 * * *
3 * * *
This will go on up to 30 with the same results. The results are the
same for any site.
Shouldn't I at least see My Router, ISP etc on the list?
Is there something 'different' that I have to do to use traceroute in
Some more info:
The 'ping' command works
To install traceroute I just did an 'apt-get install traceroute'
Did I miss something?
Any feedback is appreciated,
