We contacted GBLX and the issue was resolved shortly thereafter.  Last 
time this happened one of their internal routers hung and someone kicked 
it.  No idea if this was the same type of issue.

In this case, more that just traffic between us and Comcast was 
affected, at least according to a friend of mine who's on Comcast.
