your local ip are 192.168.x.x

those ip's will never be found on the world wide net

 

your router on the outside part will probably have  10.x.x.x

that will never be seen on the world wide net either

pldt will assign a public ip that is presented to the world

 

this will show you your public ip

Why has this just suddenly happened Woolf? ...... I've had the same router and provider for a long time.

well some idiot  did something stupid

and that ip was reported

and that ip was entered into a database

isp's can subscribe to databases like that

and then the isp can block that ip

 

remember I wrote earlier that pldt's  public ip's are share by many users

I had the same problem years ago trying to access a bank which was in Cebu, they upgraded their software and blocked my PLDT ip address, I used an ip test site to find my ip https://www.iplocation.net/ and then asked to speak to that banks tech department and explained that when I used my smart pocket device that I could access the bank but when on PLDT I could not access and gave them the ip they were blocking, they fixed it.

Ip blocking can be done in many ways, in your case they are just preventing any changes done from that ip, in my case they blocked the ip completely so I could not even access the bank at all. Years later a friend had the same problem with the same bank but he had Globe at home and I got his ip from him and contacted the bank for him and he ended up with the same results, they unblocked his ip and then he was good to go.

Too many spammers in the Philippines and many of us have the exact same ip address, so when a system operator blocks an ip, they block a lot of people rather than just the one causing the problems.

There are a few things you could do to get a new IP address:

1)      Get a static IP from ISP

2)      Disconnect your router for a few hours, days or weeks (depends on ISP)

3)      Find out the router language, use CMD (or similar) to have it release the assigned IP

4)      Change your network card (temporarily or permanently) to use a new MAC address so that ISP would assign a new IP

5)      Likewise, use a new computer to use a new MAC address

Well, this is really a learning curve for me... I am more of a hardware kind of guy LOL. 

I am very pleased to report that having taken the advice of Woolf my problem seems to have been resolved...... YAY. 

I turned off my router/modem for the night and turned it on this morning...... and "knock me down with a feather" the problem site was back up and running. 

Thanks to all who took the trouble to chip in with advice and knowledge.... luv ya'll
