Just for grins I decided to do a tracert to the DNS servers I am allowed to use with Comcast. All of them take a minimum of 10 hops to get to the DNS server............. That includes a few ringers that I added at the recommendation of some learned people, 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52, etc. Surely, there is a way to get Comcast to change its routing tables. Is there?
The routers are obviously out of my control since they're on the other side of the Comcast IP.
