Can't access stephenking.com from home

    I can't access stephenking.com from any device hooked up to my router at home. I can use the same devices at McDonalds or my fathers house to get it. But when I come back home it won't connect. In fact I'm using my iPhone at home now, but if I forced it to use the wifi and go through the router, I wouldn't be able to post this or access any part of the site. I've done everything I can think of. I can think of no reason for this unless They banned my IP address for some unknown reason.


    It's always darkest before the doom.

    Edited to fix typos caused by using the iPhone to do this instead of my iPad or laptop.

    Have you allowed cookies for the site on your home PC? (You could also try to manually add the web address to your 'trusted sites' in your browser.)

    Cookies are allowed. The confounding thing is my laptop and iPad will access stepkenking.com at mcdonalds or my dad's house. Also until the middle of the day last Tuesday I had no problem at home, the only place I have trouble doing it. Any device I run through my home modem and router will no longer access stepkenking.com

    Have you tried re-setting the router?

    Does you IP address have a "19" in it? Could be the problem...

    I'll have to reset the router when I get home. Right now I. At mcdonalds so I can type this without using the stupid dinky phone keyboard. OK that's not the reason I'm at mcdonalds, it's just a fortuitous side effect.

    Can you advise exactly what type of error you are getting? Do you get the spinning circle but the page doesn't load? Is there some type of exact error being displayed? Are you able to hit any other sites at all?

    If They banned my IP address, I would bab Them.

    On my iPad it instantly says safari cannot open this page because it could not connect to the server. On my computer under Firefox or IE it it takes a whole then comes back with a similar message. But on the iPad it is instant. And resetting the router (and the modem) didn't work.

    On chrome for the iPad it instantly says this website is not available although it gives an error code ERR_ CONNECTION_REFUSED

    I'm becoming more sand more convinced the error isn't only end .

    Does this happen with any other site? At this point I think it would be best if you contact Jordan directly. This problem is new to me...

    It happens with no other site I know. It just started Tuesday right after I commented on the new book

    Aha... That may help, Tuesday last week? That should give Jordan something more to go on, thanks.
    Send him a P.M ("Conversation", you can access that in his profile area) and include a link to this thread if you could. He has been flat out with The Basement, so might respond more quickly if you contact him directly.

    It sounds like your IP address is being blocked by our server. This can be caused by many different things. Jimpy, I've sent you an email. Follow the instruction, send me the information, and I'll take a look to find out why you were blocked (and probably unblock you ;)).
