Tracert question

When I run tracert from my laptop (with a wireless nic) to my desktop (with wired nic), the result is the following:


Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

1 2 ms 2 ms 2 ms

Trace complete

My question is: why doesn't it show the router which it passes through? Is it because it is on the same network? Or,is it because it is not really a stand-alone router but rather a combo DSL modem/router? Or, none of the above?

    Usually traffic is routed from the DSL part/Internet, to the internal network. Client on the internal network are usually switched, so your 'access router' does not 'route' traffic between the clients. They are indeed in the same network.
