Trace complete.

As you can see, hops 8 and 9 run into some sort of issue.

I've been suffering terrible disconnects recently, far more than usual. And it's definitely on the borderline from irritating to seriously problematic.

What advice can anyone give me to either avoid or otherwise work round steps 8 and 9. The connection is so poor I don't even know where they are.
