"No route to host" makes me think that it's a routing problem.  Does:

        netstat -rn | grep default

show your ISP's gateway?  If not, try adding it by hand as root:

        route add default [IP address of gateway]

Try it again, and see if you still get "No route to host".  Also, are
you trying to ping these servers by IP address or FQDN?  If by FQDN, try
by IP address and see if the result is any different.

I am now blessing your keyboard...
