RV180 not showing up in traceroute

Unanswered Question

Hello all,

I have a RV180 router that is not showing up in a traceroute. I have multiple VLANs configured where the clients are on one VLAN and the servers are on another. Inter-VLAN routing is enabled and I can ping back and forth and everything works. However, when I do a traceroute from one VLAN to another, or to anywhere outside the network, the router shows up with the source address.

Here is an example of a trace from a client machine on one VLAN to a server on a different VLAN:

traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets

1  mpls-sv01.domain.com (  0.899 ms  0.430 ms  0.408 ms

2  mpls-sv01.domain.com (  1.203 ms  1.079 ms  1.138 ms

Here is another example to an outside address:

traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets

1  mpls-agw1.inet.qwest.net (  0.734 ms  0.393 ms  0.361 ms

2  mpls-gateway-32-38.domain.com (  1.277 ms  1.463 ms  1.259 ms

3  mpls-dsl-gw62.mpls.qwest.net (  20.675 ms  21.135 ms  21.061 ms

4  mpls-agw1.inet.qwest.net (  20.922 ms  19.953 ms  20.717 ms

I'm not understanding why the router is not showing up as the first hop. Or at least why it looks like router is being hit but not responding properly. Any suggestions?
