Let's hope it's the latter, because I am getting a new router.
The first hop is the ISP's router, not your own.

This should be pretty obvious because your router is going to have a private IP like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

What is the first IP it fails at?

Just a guess, but I can almost guarantee that the ISP denying ICMP for security reasons. Otherwise, the problem wouldn't manifest as slow ping times, it would be no connectivity at all.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
