      NZB Index sites blocked by Sky?

      I have recently been unable to access NZBGrabit Forums from my Sky broadband, but can access it from my pone on Vodafone 3G connection. This has only started in the last few days as I have been able to access it prior to this. I have just rebuilt my Win8 system and cleared all caches in IE and Chrome, and flushed my DNS. I always get a dns resolution error when trying to connect to that page.

      If this is the case, I will be mightily ****** off with Sky and will be looking to take my business elsewhere.

      No problem here with Firefox, getting a 'you are not logged in' notice as I am not a member. Try using public DNS servers like Google, 8.8.8.8 - 8.8.4.4. or OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 - 208.67.220.220

      I'll try setting that locally and see how it goes. I don't fancy have to set all my devices manually though.

      Can I ask how you are using your Netgear router to connect to Sky? I thought they were locked down to their own hardware?

      I use the original Netgear DG834GT router supplied by Sky, but running DGTeam firmware. Although it is against the T & Cs many use their own router. It is just a case of getting the log in details from your Sky router and putting them into your own one. Any ADSL router will work with Sky. You can find out all you need to know in the Technical Help section. - Broadband Technical Help

      Cheers, I'll have a look at that. I have a Cisco WRT610N piggy backing off my Sky unit to handle the wireless access, but I would prefer to have the flexibility of using it for everything.

      I don't think you would be able to connect that router direct to Sky as it does not have a built in ADSL modem.

      Site seems to load ok from my sky FTTC line using Chrome.

      Since the site requires a username/password to access I cannot proceed any further than the login page.

      Opens up for me fine on ADSL with the default DNS using Chrome very quickly, so guests have no access, something to hide perhaps???
