This may be a dumb question. I was running the tracert command in command prompt and noticed the first hop is always 192.168.0.1, which is the router IP. The second hop is always 192.168.200.1. I don't know what this hope is for. I logged into my router and it shows no devices with that IP address. I do have AdGuard Home set up with a static IP but the IP is not 192.168.200.1.

A lot of cable modems and fiber modems will use something like that for it's own IP address on the LAN side. I was pretty pissed about that when I changed modems and it changed to using a 192.168 address (my old one used a 10.0 address). I had to carve out a special route on my layer 3 switch to deal with it as the 192.168's were all in my private networks/VLAN address space.

Your router has IP address 192.168.0.1 in i the internal subnet (LAN).
It must have an IP on the external subnet (WAN) too. Is that perhaps 192.168.200.x? (Where x is not 1.)
The router must have default route (gateway). The next router that can route beyond these two subnets. I'd guess 192.168.200.1.

That next router can be the modem or then it is ISP's router outside your home. Some modems can be switched into "bridged" mode to remove one router and subnet from the topology.
