      Is it only easynet exchanges which are rubbish

      I have been speaking to a couple of guys at work who have been on Sky for a couple of weeks now and they say they have experienced no problems at all accesing ebay etc or having no connection.They are on a BT exchange as Easynet is not in their area yet.So is it just us poor buggers on Easynet exchanges who are suffering, my connection is just getting worse, I have gone from being unable to access loads of sites but with no connection problems to now being unable to establish any connection for hours on end during the past 2 days.
      should have stayed with Pipex

      Nothing to do with Easynet exchanges. I believe this is a (temporary) problem with the IP range Sky have been allocated. Before Sky this was an unavailable range and some sites have not updated their systems so they presume anyone with an affected IP address must be spoofing.

      It will get sorted out but there's nothing sky can do directly themselves other than ask affected sites to update their records.

      Any general connection troubles you are experiencing are almost certainly unrelated.

      Totally agree Saturday, what makes it odder is that I can access sites that others cant who are on the same IP range as me?

      When I block ranges at work, I use the full 0/254 range so cant understand how they have pinpointed certain IPs?

      As I said in a previous thread I contacted ebay with regard to ip blocking and they say they are not blocking any of the Sky BB ip range!

      No offence intended but I somehow doubt that your email got to anyone who would know a thing about how the technical aspects of the site are controlled.
