So, every other ping is failing? Perhaps your firewall is ignoring every other ping because it's coming so fast from the previous ping and it considers it a DOS attack? Just a guess. Try this: PING RMTSYS(<whatever IP>) NBRPKT(99) which will send 99 pings. then see if every other one failed. If so, I think it might have something to do with your firewall (again, just a guess).

The router is on the other side of our firewall (Firebox) When we ping any outside IP address ex: ping www.midrange.com Pings 1,3 and 5 are successful. Pings 1 & 2 fail with no response after one second. If we ping to local addresses or to the DMZ of the firewall all 5 pings are successful. I can't figure out what is happening to the pings (2 & 4) that are getting lost. Secondly if there is an improper route on the 400 this may be affecting performance.
