Specs: Windows 8.1
I have just the opposite problem. The is a forum I once belonged to that I haven't been on in a while (6 mo to 1 yr) and when I try to go to the forum from their main page I am blocked because it says my IP Address is blocked or not visible.

Thank you for all your answers, likely all were good.

The problem "self-corrected" before I received your answers, so I am not sure whose answer is "Best" as such, With our Comcast connection, we are always resetting the router. It has been a little better since they recently upgraded the box. But it is still not a bad idea to do if needed or not, or so I am told.

I did have more than one issue most likely. When my signal dropped the computer latched onto the nearest viable system, which belonged to a neighbor. I manually switched it back and needed to restart our router.

Once internet service was up with full service the forum recognized me and opened up.

The ony thing I did not try was talking to the administrator. I did not think of it, But then again, I am not sure how I would do that if it would not let me enter the site. I do not have an outside contact address or phone to the admin there.

Thanks again.

If your IP has been blocked, you should contact a site administrator or support.

Alternatively, you can try accessing it through a VPN or proxy.

Marking answers that solve, or help helps you solve a problem as "Best Answer" also helps other people solve similiar ones in the future.

If your server uses dynamic addressing, turning your router power off then on again will cause it to produce a different IP.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In addition to turning off your router and back on to reset your computer's IP address, turn off and back on your Modem if a separate unit so that it will call for a new public IP address from your ISP as well. This is a good thing to do occasionally anyway and any time your router's firewall has been attacked or probed from outside as well.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
