Traceroute results-- what do they mean?

This is what a recent traceroute text said:
traceroute: Warning: us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com has multiple addresses; using 126.96.36.199
traceroute to us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com (188.8.131.52), 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
I have been having terrible disconnection issues with WoW since Oct. 13th. I have been trying multiple things to try to fix it but have not had any success. A trace before this one a couple weeks ago looked very different (a list of numbers and connections the way most tracers look) so I don't know if did something to cause this new 'warning' it is showing me. Anyway, what does it mean that WoW.com has multiple addresses and how should i fix this?
(Please see Figure 5 on this page: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=21299 . Perhaps the information I put in that it tells me to is causing this?)

Have you tried running the trace route through the Network Utility? It can be found in your Utilities folder. Click on the Traceroute tab and type in us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com then press Enter.
You can also try bypassing your router and connecting directly to your modem if you believe your router is blocking the trace route. Please reply with your results.
