I am running pingpltr and observe significant packet loss at IP address 10.254.254.2. This is last hop before ISP.

Is this IP a router from the ISP? . Is it a hard ( rather than virtual ) number.

Thanksl

It's hard to know without more information. All 10.x.x.x addresses are private IP addresses, and you shouldn't see them after your border router. However some ISPs, notably Covad, cheat and use private IPs in their infrastructure. This can cause false packet loss indications and other weird traceroute artifacts.

Can you provide the full traceroute?
