[ubuntu-za] gateway setup problem

Hi everyone, what a issue to be stuck with on a Friday afternoon.
Something changed (and I realy dont know what since last night) and
now I cant access a gateway/firewall on our work LAN.
I'm trying to access the gateway (192.168.101.128) from my laptop
I cant ping the IP from my laptop, but I can ping and connect from
another computer on the network, same kind of settings as below.
Here is some info :
$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
Ran route :
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.101.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 1000 0 0 eth0
default 192.168.101.128 0.0.0.0 UG 100 0 0 eth0
$ ifconfig eth0 :
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:22:64:4d:5d:0e
inet addr:192.168.101.204 Bcast:192.168.101.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::222:64ff:fe4d:5d0e/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:16823 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:6036343 (6.0 MB) TX bytes:1564634 (1.5 MB)
I can ping from the laptop other IPs on the LAN, within the same
range, but not the gateway on 192.168.101.128.
I've asked the ISP to check their rules on the gateway, if they could
be blocking my IP to their gateway (pretty soon I'll put in my own
gateway/firewall, and really cant wait), but no luck?
any other suggestions?
(ps, I've restarted the networking interface a few times, flushed the
route table a few times, and restarted the whole computer a few times)
Thanks and have a briljant weekend (G0 Sharks!)
