what do you mean "hardware firewall"?

Dlink DFL-700.

AFAIK it doesn't contain in-silicon logic to route/block/pass packets according to rules. it works in the same way like computer running say FreeBSD with network cards, just it's dedicated box.

today the "hardware" is abused too much.

true "hardware" routers/firewalls begins at about 10Gbit/s range, where making this into hardware make sense.

your firewall (whatever "hardware" means) probably block traceroute

Right - thanks. I will see if I can unblock it then.

traceroute uses UDP packets, no special port numbers.
