      Have sky blocked me from accessing this site?

      I'm trying to go to sherdog.net, it's one of the biggest MMA forums in the world. I can't access the site on my mac using safari or chrome. I've tried on my phone (via wifi) and still nothing. Reset the router, restarted devices but I just can't access the site.

      I turn off wifi on my phone and and go to the site via 3g and it works perfectly!

      What would be causing me to be unable to access this particular website??

      Thanks

      I can access that site OK here (also using a Mac with Safari). It might just be down to your external IP address. I've currently got a 90.201.xxx.xxx external IP here.

      I can't get to the site either.
      Yet another one that hasn't updated their systems to accept ip addresses starting with 5.

      You could contact the site to let them know or try leaving your router switched off for an hour to see if you get an addresses not starting with 5.

      Other cases of the 5. curse here:

      When I go to google and check my ip address, it doesn't start with a 5. Is there something i'm overlooking?

      Thanks

      You have one of the newer 151 addresses which may also be effected. Try a reboot and see if you can get a different address. Best to switch the power off for a minute or two, to make certain it resyncs with the exchange.

      Doesn't clicking the 'Sky Test' on the router stats page give you a new IP as well?
