Recently I have started comming across the following issue at our satellite branch.
Our branch, subnet 192.168.1.0, has a DSL line to the internet, gateway 192.168.1.250, and a route to us using a diginet line with a router with the IP address 192.168.1.254.
Last week Tuesday PC's started loosing the second gateway, 192.168.1.254. By this I mean, if they ping it they get no response, and if I try to get to our subnet 192.168.0.0 I get nothing. The manual route I added to 192.168.0.0 using gateway 192.168.1.254 is still there when I do a route print, this has also started happing now to networked printers.
This is only true for 5 PC's at the rest of them are all working as they should
I have done a route /f and recreated the routes but nothing change. This is happening on both Windows XP machines and Windows 7 PC's, on WiFi and hard wired connections, so I am at a loss now. Please anyone with some help.
Thank you in advance

Where is the default route configured? On the default router at 192.168.1.250?
The first thing I would do would be to do a route print on one of the problem machines and see exactly what it looked like, compared to one that works. There has to be something different.

Hi Some feedback on this, it only seems to be certain IP addresses. If I change a PC that cannot pint the routers, 192.168.1.254, to a new one specifically 5, I get a response from the router, if I change sit to 6 I get no response. I have found a few IP addresses that works for the network.
