We have lost conection to our exchange server for external website and email. The emails are sitting queued on the exchange server and we cannot access any external websites. We got the error code 0x80070008 in our event log at the exact time we lost the conections.
Any ideas??

It sounds like your ISP had an outage.

The error code relates to active sync problems.  Which would be caused by an internet outage.

Just to confirm;
1) you have no internet
2) people can't access OWA from the outside
3) the exchange server has a bunch of email queued and isn't sending it

And no desktops can access the internet?

Have you called your ISP to confirm there's no kind of outage?

It could also an issue with your firewall or another routing device between your servers/PC's and the internet.

No desktops can access the internet in any of our branches. We called the ISP and there was no problem at their end. If it was an issue with our firewall why has it just sudenly happenened but think it may be a router issue as we had the the same problem last week around the same time we run a spyware scan with trend and after turning the router off/on it came back to us. Obviously have tried this today and didnt work again!!

Can you telnet into your router.  If so then try to ping out to the internet.  If you can't telnet, then setup a PC with the same static IP as your router and try to confirm that the issue is with your router.  

If you can telnet into the router then try to ping out to the internet by ip address and by name.  Also test to see if you can ping the local network.  This will tell you if the issue is on the LAN or the WAN.

Is this router the last device before your connection to the internet?

Can you ping the gateway of the router?

If you can't ping the gateway of the router then setup a PC using the same static settings that your router has and see if it can get out to the internet.

If you can ping the gateway of the router then the issue is not with the router but a device further down the line.  If this device belongs to your ISP then you need to call them and have them come out to repair it.

Then call your ISP, and tell them you have an outage and you've tested your side and it's working fine.  Request that they walk you though setting up the static settings on your PC, which is connected directly to their hardware, to confirm this is the case.  Most ISP's have support around the clock so you should be able to call them now.
