Cant connect to forum

Hi all

I cant seem to connect to the forum for the last few weeks ..
Have not had this issue for the many years I have been on this forum ....

I am currently connecting via free web proxies .. but they often crash .. and I lose posts .. and I cant see most of the images accessing via a web proxy .. also the auto login does not seem to function through a proxy .. further more the proxy seem to stick a bunch of web links advertisements all over the website :-(

On my phone, if I connect through my phone's data network I can get access but if I go through the home wifi I cant connect.

If there any network gurus here that can have a look and help with this I would be very grateful..
Below are pings and traceroute .. from one of my computers on my home network... but any other computer whatever the OS has the same issue..

    Why are you connecting through a proxy? The Ping and traceroute you provide will not use the proxy so they are not necessarily helpful in diagnosing the problem. AS22384 a.k.a. Nationalnet.com doesn't allow traceroutes across their net so it will always die there.

    Man lost another post trying to explain this :-( .....

    I have to edit this post several times .. so that It gets through LOL ...

    The ping and traceroute show that I cant connect to the forum ... for the past week or so .. normally I just put in the address and I am in, like I have done for the last few years ..

    I have tried several ways to get access back eg using google translate etc .. but I cant post just view the forum... The only way so far that I can post is via a web proxy ... except I cant view pictures and the proxy adds tons of inline adverts and I cant post reliably etc .. .. so I am asking for help here in this thread ... to see if anyone knows what's happening ..

    @ironheart .. the first traceroute shows that AS22384 let the packet through .. thats was to nikonrumors.com .. I can get to nikonrumors.com just cant get to forum.nikonrumors.com

    My traceroute behavior is identical to yours. The forum doesn't respond to traceroute, the main site does. I can however ping both. There are some insidious reasons why it might not be working. You mention that your phone can't connect either when connected to your wifi. That seems to indicate a problem with your home network. What if you connect an Ethernet cable directly to your router? I assume you've rebooted the router? Can you try a different computer, a friends, or a work machine just to eliminate that possibility? If you go to a neighbors house, or a coffee shop, you can connect?

    Maybe someone at home is trying to tell you something... like they want to to stop looking at Nikon Rumors. ;)
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Maybe as PB_PM said like a canon buddy. Did you sign in to nikon rumors. I know it's a dumb question. :(|)

    I have not been able to see any issues with your current account on our end. Could your ISP have done something?

    @ironheart .. thanks for that info on traceroute not getting to forum ...

    all computers on my home network cant get to forum.nikonrumors.com, whatever operating system wifi or ethernet cable .. yes booted router ..

    @msmoto .. I am in the middle of dealing with the ISP .. LOL ...for the last few days .. they wont call back unless its the week day and although I am at home during the day the registered number they call back on is my son's and he is at work .. round and round we go ..

    @Parke I cant get to the forum so I cant login :-) unless I fake my IP via a web proxy ... I can view the forum though via google translate .. its funny reading all your posts in another language :-) .. but I cant login via google translate.

    Hi
    My isp is saying its not a problem with them as they can get access to the main site and the forum .. it looks like the subdomain forum.nikonrumors.com is blocking my IP address. They told me to contact the site's administrator to see why they are blocking me. :-(

    As to a blockled IP address....this will occur if the IP address is associated with spamming. These are listed in several anti-spam, anti-hacker websites, and if it shows up, then in general we block it.

    Is your ISP using a static IP address.....because in most cases this changes with various carriers, apparently in the way they manage band width.

    Hope it keeps working for you.

    Yes my ISP provides a static IP. I have checked my IP address on blacklist sites and its not flagged..

    Unfortunately, its NOT "working" because I can only get access via free web proxies which add lots of popups and advertisements. I also need to login each time.. and I cant post images... :-( (I can post via my phone as it can use its data network)

    Note that "nikonrumors.com" access is fine for me .. but "forum.nikonrumors.com" just blocks me, I cant ping it or route to it. I don't want to post my IP up in a public forum is there someone I can send it to to check if the server is blocking it? it just happened a couple of weeks ago ..

    I have found a way around this .. for now .. it seems that my ISP has several undocumented Proxy servers which I can hop on for a ride (good ol internet forums) .. its a bit slower but I can get through !! Yay !!

    I have created a Firefox profile with the network settings to use this proxy to get to forum.nikonrumors.com !! so all I need to do is use this special Firefox for browsing the forum and use my normal ones for the rest of the world .. !!! yay !!
