on the phone with ISP right now. they said my IP address might be blocked for some reason.
Its a possibility if for some reason the server decided to block you.
Ask them how you can renew your IP address to get a new one, in some cases you get a new one every time the router/modem is disconnected and reconnected others use different policy.

solved! apparently my IP address begins with 726 which used to be ONLY private IP addresses and some sites are set up to automatically block private IPs. They recently started changing some of those numbers to public IPs and some websites haven't updated their security to allow access. So my ISP has to contact them and prove to them I'm not a threat and then they will change their security settings to allow me to have access. It might take two weeks to fix, but at least I know what the problem was. Ridiculous, right?
I'm glad its solved. AFAIK IPv4 addresses end at 255 max and 255 its for broadcast do you mean 126?
