Do the addresses come from one of the providers and if so is the other
provider annoucing this network?  If so is this other provider
announcing a longer match thereby being prefered?  

I'm guessing your not getting full routes, partial routes are a
providers own networks and those of it's customers.

  I can't see what you could possibly do to your router config to affect
the incoming packets since you don't own the network as path prepending
won;t help.
