    Has anyone encountered a problem when trying to access this forum via Internet or Tapatalk app when on home wifi?? It was working fine up until day before yesterday, now it works on every network except my home wifi... Wtf????

    From what I've researched - it sounds like a validation issue on the WFF host server.

    Do we know or have a POC for this forum problem?

    You might have a blocked IP. Happened to me the other day. Go to http://www.whatsmyip.org/ and then send Chris Scoones the number that you see there.

    No, DO NOT send to the mods. Send to Chris Scoones. We don't run the software. That's Chris' thing. We simply add Chris to the conversation so he can take over.

    Ah, good call.

    DO WHAT JERRY SAYS!

    I'll edit my post to prevent future confusion.

    You can just change your IP and that will work. I have to do it from time to time when I get blocked.

    guys I have been unsuccessful in reaching Chris Scoones to get my IP unblocked. Does anyone know if he is still active on the forum? Is there anyone else I can contact??

    Thanks!

    He owns the forum but hasbeen very busy at work. Did you try disconnecting and shutting off your modern then reconnecting and restarting it to change your IP?

    Yes I have.... I've tried powering it down, waiting for 1 minute, power up again but it keeps giving me the same ip.

    Who is your internet provider? Can you get to Google via WiFi?

    Try resetting your router as well. Sometimes it's a firewall thing, and todays routers always think they are smarter than they really are.

    Yes, everything outside this website works just fine.

    My service is Comcast. I logged into my modem/router (it's all in 1 box) and tried to see how to release/renew IP but could not figure it out. I haven't called comcast but don't want to either...

    I have the same problem. Haven't been able to access the site in a week on my home computer or wi-fi. I've tried a bunch of fixes, but nothing works. From what I've gathered from other post on this topic, the only solution is to send your ip to Chris.
