Riding the Train of Thought

Internet in Asia Isolated?

The sky is falling! Run! Scamper!

Is it just me, or are other people also having trouble accessing some websites? Few websites open up quickly, while (most) others are taking ages to download.

As an experiment, I tried running traceroute to Google’s different servers.

  • traceroute google.com timed out after 64 hops.
  • traceroute google.co.jp completed in 14 hops.
  • traceroute google.tw completed in 13 hops.
  • traceroute google.co.au timed out after 64 hops.
  • traceroute google.cn completed in 15 hops.

In both the above cases, traceroute showed that data had reached USA’s servers, but there was no response afterwards.

I was connected to a server in the USA at the same time and ran traceroute to google.com, which completed in 14 hops. Now that’s interesting.

WordPress.com, and dataone.in work from my computer,  but I was unable to even ping to onlamp.com (which has now started responding). Traceroute gave up after 64 hops.

If it was a matter of a few minutes, even hours, I would not sit and rant about it here… I have noticed this issue since last two days, and its not going away – only that at night, the issue worsens. Almost all of the websites become unreachable… I’m wondering why.
