Not all arcor ip ranges have been blocked. I have a confirmation from mplayerhq.hu for 126.96.36.199/12 and there are some more ranges confirmed by tests.'ve no problems reaching this website from my Vodaphone/Arcor account.
Maybe borghal should try it, over here the DNS works fine. IP gets resolved but the servers close connection immediately.But on the other hand, I've changed the standard DNS setting in my router recently (currently, I'm using Google at 188.8.131.52 . http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/09/h...ster-browsing/
If you're able to change your DNS setting in your router easily, I'd recommend trying that. Write down your settings though in case something breaks
