It definitely looks like a routing problem, since the networks you
can't reach (internal campus networks) have high numbers, and the
hosts you can reach are on the low-numbered ARPANET (10). It's as
if the core gateways are only keeping routes for a certain number of
networks. (Possibly the ones you can't reach are in the new second
fragment of the EGP update, as mentioned earlier....)
