I've been having issues as well; can't connect to my VPN or servers over in Europe for the past 24 hours or so. Only way is via proxy (which doesn't suit my purpose) - otherwise, tracert fails every time. (openDNS, google dns, few others)
Possibly not related but I'm banging my head against the wall here, and who knows it might help.
Completely unrelated. Take up the issue with your VPN provider. Probably a routing related issue and one within their own network.
