Um, this shouldn't be possible. You can only reach machines on your
local network address space as determined by your IP and netmask. To
reach others, you have to pass through a gateway (a.k.a. router).

Most likely you have your netmask set wrong. You're probably using a
255.255.255.0 netmask, which would let you reach IPs x.x.118.1-255.
What happens if you use something like 255.255.0.0? Granted, that
probably isn't your proper netmask and that can create problems
reaching certain IP addresses, but should let you talk to that router.
First thing to do is contact your ISP or network admin and verify that
your IP settings are correct.
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
