As an alternative to traceroute, you might use mtr, it's like traceroute on steroids.
From the package description:
mtr combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping' programs in a single network diagnostic tool.
As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine.
mtr-tiny is compiled without support for X and conserves disk space.
