'Network host unreachable' routing problem

Hi, when running a tracert on steam9.steampowered.com (or steamx.steampowered.com) i get:

>tracert steam9.steampowered.com

Tracing route to steam9.steampowered.com [207.173.177.19]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 Destination host unreachable.

Trace complete.


and others on the steam forum don't seem to be reporting the same problem. Running a tracert from www.network-tools.com gives:

so the problem may be a bit further afield. Any chance anyone could pin it down?

there is a problem further afield as i can't access the ip address in question with either of my ISPs, but as bbrown says it looks like your problem is earlier in the route.
