Using Traceroute


I have noticed a problem using traceroute this morning. When I attempt to traceroute to www.google.com I get the following errors:

msIcmp checksum is wrong

If I use a program like 'mtr' everything looks fine?

Can anyone help me find out what the problem is. I don't think I have changed anything in my network configuration, could it be my ISP??

You would get this if a next step router was "mangling" your icmp packets..

Same problem on other websites?

Yes, it appears to be all websites, I attempted a traceroute to my ISP's DNS server and it had the same problem. Using traceroute on LAN addresses doesn't appear to cause the same problem.

I am sure that nothing has changed within my router!!!!!
