I can't access some websites from a subset of computers on our work network - and it's really random. Examples of sites I can't access:
www.digium.com www.lenta.ru www.asterisk.com
Our provider (Verizon) swears that everything is good on their end. We've tried rebooting the router - to no avail. Out of 10 PCs in the office, 4 of them can't access the sites above.
I've tried comparing
tracert between a site that I can and cannot access. The only meaningful difference I see is that after leaving the Verizon network, the non-accessible sites go through 188.8.131.52, while accessible ones do not.
Here is the tracert from hitting google.com (accessible)

The problem started occurring sometimes last week. How can I troubleshoot it?
P.S. The problematic machines are a mix of Win7 and XP (as are the non-problematic ones)
