Cannot access the Internet

I have a Cisco 1841 connected to the Internet with public IP address. I have a PC connected to the Fa port of the router. The block of IP address for the LAN is a public block. My PC cannot access the Internet. I am not sure why as I have a default route (ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ISP_IP_address) pointed to the ISP WAN port.

From the router I can ping:
- The ISP router WAN port
- The PC
- the router Fa port
- the router WAN port

From the PC, I can ping:
- The router LAN/WAN port

The WAN side is /30 and LAN side is /28 public IP addresses.

I am not the location where the PC and the router are but what is 209.191.122.70.

Thx

Problem fixed. The LAN public block of IP address was missing in the BGP routing table of the provider as a result of their maintenance. Thx
