Solved Restore access to my own domains via wifi.

July 9, 2015 at 14:53:02
Specs: Windows 8, AMD
Although all other websites I have tried work fine, my own domains are suddenly no longer accessible via wifi (Linksys E3000), but are via ethernet on my cable modem. Have tried three browsers, four devices with three different operating systems, clearing browser cache, flushing DNS, changing DNS servers on E3000. All these websites work well for anyone not on my wifi network. All the hardware had been working well for many months prior to this. Thank you for whatever assistance you can provide.

UPDATE: I just cloned my MAC address to my Linksys E3000 and I can once again access my domains and email.
However, why did this happen?

I now have my "why" answered. Below is the reply from my hosting service;


We have checked your IP address XX.XXX.X.XXX and noticed that it was blocked on the server firewall due to multiple login attempts (Checking email more than 60 times in an hour) within 60 minutes.

We have now unblocked your IP address so that you can access the website, emails, cPanel, FTP, etc...

In order to avoid such problem, please disable the auto-login option in your email client configuration.

Routers can glitch and sometimes just powering off for 30 seconds puts them back on track. Most things digital seem to need a restart every now and then.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for the reply Derek. I should have included that I powered off and rebooted the E3000 numerous times. This seems most likely something related to the MAC address of the E3000 being blacklisted, excluded, filtered, or something similar, as all was well immediately after I cloned my PC's wireless NIC MAC address. However, although I found the solution I'm not knowledgeable enough to know why it worked.

OK as your tried powering off/on then I'll join you as a "don't know" on this. Keep watching as someone else might have some ideas.
