Thanks.  What concerned me was the first hop...22ms. is ~ the distance from Maui to Oahu, but why the Chinese IP?  Cruel 
joke?
I"m using Hawaiian Telcom's ADSL service and that first hop has always been their gateway IP address.
Another TCP trace shows the first hop as 123.74.62.128...another CN address.
