Anything google related won't load in any web browser

A couple of hours ago, google just stopped working on my computer. I can't get to any of the sites, google.com, google.co.jp, mail.google.com, etc. And any website that has a google search engine doesn't work, and sites with google ads take forever to load. I've done a virus scan and a spyware scan, nothing. I've reset the computer and the modem, nothing. I did a system restore, nothing. Cleared out all the cookies and cache files for all browsers, nothing.
I can ping google using command line, ping www.google.com and i can get to google through proxy sites. This is driving me crazy...Anyone have any idea what the problem is?
I'm using Windows XP with IE, firefox and opera. My ISP is just standard Leopalace, the free internet service at my apartment in Japan (there also isn't an Leonet customer service line, so....yea). I've also noticed that about a quarter of websites, mostly forums have slowed down as well, though my download rates are the same.
