Wow I have a sub-millisecond latency to 126.96.36.199 from home, but not to 188.8.131.52
@angristan I was about to say, that latency was too low for it to be in your ISP's network

Cloudflare is 11-15ms away
@angristan Looking at the TTL for 18.104.22.168, those packets are not even reaching past your router.
My guess is that your router has some sort of internal misconfiguration or manual route to 22.214.171.124 going nowhere. 126.96.36.199 is sometimes used as some sort of placeholder, which may disrupt traffic that should go to that IP.
@angristan here are my pings for reference
