A router, technically speaking, has two IP addresses. That address may be an internal address or public, it depends on your network setup. As for vansmith's output:

1 my.router ( 3.643 ms 0.818 ms 0.728 ms
2 ( 2.777 ms 2.585 ms 2.683 ms
The first thing I noticed was the two private networks, and That's why you see both addresses most likely, there's a router between the two private networks before the packet jumps to the public network on hop 3. The * in traceroute is not really a failure. It generally means a firewall is blocking ICMP packets used by traceroute or the packet TTL expired before it made it back to the originating host.
