HELP ISP Blocking games

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, the passed day I have noticed that my isp is specifically blocking my ip from playing workld of warcraft.

I have reset the modem, released and renwed my ip through my router. Cleared dns cache and repaired my internet connection using windows xp.

Then I got alittle pissed, I could still surf the net normally, but whenever I tryed to access blizzard/battle.net websites it would be blocked instantly. So then I thought of something people with natraully high latency do. I started using a prooxy, boom instant connection. But it wouldn't authenticate over the proxy so I still couldn't play the game.

Then I called tech support, basicaly those crappy prepaid tech support that are not affiliated with the cable company. They had no clue what to do.

I ran numerous trace routes, the target being the blizzard/battle.net and it would not even pass the isp. Dead connection, turn the proxy on and boom, bypassing the route handing from my isp and suddenly I can connect, but like before unable to make a connection.

Trace routes were not being passed through the isp, they were stopped there and just dropped and timed out.

So what should I do, I will not put up with my isp screwing me because I play a specific game.

Sounds more like a DNS resolution issue.

If you can ping 12.129.242.22, that's worldofwarcraft.com

No go, that is also getting no response. It isn't even being passed through the isp. Computer>router>modem>Then it drops, but everything else works.

You should only have one hop that is local. Your modem should not show up in a traceroute.

If it's not even reaching your ISP's hop its not their problem. HIGHLY unlikely they would implement an access list on that specific device to inhibit you from utilizing a service which consumes only 10-20 KB/sec.

Someone in the house have administrative access to your network equipment?
Wireless using WPA with strong passphrase?

Back in the day I used to play pranks on people if had access to their junk (delete britney spears albums, etc) for fun.

Wow, super lame. I had installed peer block and forgot about it, yeah it was blocking blizzards sites, perm allow and boom. What a stupid thing to block. I was curious and poked around the router, watched the connection when I went to blizz sites and nothing came up. Was like ***? So then I poked around firewalls and then remembered peer block.

I had one of those I feel like such a dumbass moments.

plug your computer directly in the modem without a router

More sound advice for you would be to actually read the thread.

I know just how you feel.

One time I was ready to complain to EA after failing to connect to Battlefield BC2 for days. Then I realized PeerBlock was one of my startup programs, and it had been stopping me the whole time. I felt so stupid.
