That website being ba.com, or british-airways.com.

I have read most of the questions/answers on this site that pertains to it, and have not had any luck as of yet.

Here is what I have done:
Renamed the HOSTS file to hosts.bak
renamed the LMHOSTS file
ipconfig /flushdns
ping ba.com:

Pinging ba.com [163.166.156.201] with 32 bytes of data:

Set router MTU to 1400
Updated firmware on router

This problem exists on all computers on the router, but works on a friends computer with the same exact isp down the street.  So I am wondering if its something in the router.  ba.com is the only site so far I have noticed that this problem exists.
