Thanks. It’s a heck of a long thread so might take me a while. Good thing is that Home IP is fine, but seems like the AT&T IP address of my phone is the one blocked. Could be a subnet since my wife’s phone does the same.
See post 26. It seems the user used some Russian service to access the forum through IP6. That specific solution probably won’t help you, but maybe you have other ways to get to the forum using IP6 which might work.
I have always on VPN to my home network so I would never have noticed a problem like this. But I just tried through my phone without VPN on Verizon and it seems to work just fine. At least for now.
I am able to bypass the block by changing my DNS provider on my phone. Setting it to a public DNS server, like Google’s 188.8.131.52 allowed me to access the forum through my mobile device. On Android, you can easily set the DNS if you have root, but there are also many apps that will let you do this by creating a local VPN on your phone, and connecting through it.
