Access blocked to a vendors servers on internet

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a network in my home office with cisco 1811 router and Windows 7 laptop, Windows XP desktop, Windows Vista desktop and Windows 2003 server. My web site and email are hosted by a thrid party. About a week ago my server no longer can access the hosting companies servers. I can not get pop connection, odbc connection or browse my web site from the server. This server can access any other sites such as google, yahoo, cnn etc. I have no issues from any of my other PCs on the network. Here is what I have tried so far. There are least 3 differnet IP addresses that I am unable to access.
1 Cleared routing table
2 Disables second nic
3 Disables local DNS
4 Removed static IP address
5. Disabled firewall
6. Ping host gets = dest host unreachable, can ping other sites

I noticed this when my ODBC connection stopped working .
