[NTISP] trace routes on Livingston equipment

Something that I have considered a simple annoyance has the appearance of a
problem and I would hope to rid myself of it.

I have been using a Livingston router for 3+ years. It works, it has never
needed changing, it just sits there and routes. Great.


Whenever I do traceroutes I get a timeout at the router.

I have upgraded to almost the latest OS. No help. I had thought it to be a
naming issue (DNS, etc for the serial port) but I am not sure anymore. My
upstream provider told me that the Livingston OS does not support the
Windows traceroute program. This seems to make a bit of sense because I have
used Trace Route gateways to trace back to me and the problem didn't
(always) happen.

I can live with this but it doesn't look good. Has anyone else dealt with

Seems funny to move to a 2501 for this alone.
