What a lot of us are trying to tell you is that ICMP deproritization in routers is common, not specifically indicative of a problem, and that you should focus on a different method of testing.
I understand deprioritation in routers, what I'm trying to figure out is, why is the gateway not responding anymore, is it because Sandy made a damage to the infrastructure? It used to answer to pings within 30ms or less anytime
since I have this service before Sandy and now it's taking a very long time to answer the request(timeout). You agree with me it's harder to diagnose performance problem without the missing data. It's easy to say to ignore the gateway not answering and focus on the rest of the hops. It's true all the traceroute I posted have good acceptable hop readings except for the gateway but before this storm, those hops that answers @15ms were @10ms or less. If you were a gamer, those are better ping times. All I'm saying here is, I understand Sandy made some damages in our area and probably is the cause of all of these abnormal readings. I've checked the maintenance site in my area and there are areas that are still down plus hub maintenances this week and next. Maybe this is just a temporary setback, I believe once TWC lit the rest of my area and finish the maintenance next week, it will be back to normal.
