Need advise


Went to a site I go to alot and after seeing the main page went to read a topic and poof, can't get on the site now, and in a search will just keep searching for it. But I can with another device site is working just like it should, just not on this device, so someone didn't like something I said and is spoofing me or something. Using windows 8 and firefox.
Any good idea's ? Thanks

I had this same thing happen about a month ago and a reboot fixed it. The reboot this time did nothing to help. So its something done to this computer.

Did you try clearing browser data and cache? Cookies?

If so, take windows 8 computer outside. Douse with lighter fluid. Light on fire.

Well the wife would be lost with out it.
Just tried it for that site and still no work.
I wonder if a modem reboot would do anything? Could someone spoof the isp?
It only blocked me after initial sign on.

There isn't much to do to help (even for a Windows user) if you don't tell us more.
Preferably the site.

The site works fine using a phone to access it. I'm gona try the Linux box when I can.
I rebooted the modem still can't get on it.

Are you accessing it by phone via your same internet (WiFi) connection the computer uses? And the same login credentials for the site?

If you can use the same public IP and credentials on a different machine that should narrow it down to your machine and, in theory, eliminate the possibility that they blocked your account because they didn’t like something you said.

Not sure why you think someone is “spoofing” you. Can you elaborate?

It might help to know what site is the one in question.

Its working now, I'm thinking it was either what ever entity is hosting that site or someone knows how to intercept traffic to it. It serves no purpose to name the site, it worked perfect for everyone else, just not me.
