bit weird this but i cant connect to anything on emperor2.bounceweb.com - 18.104.22.168 (its a shared hosting server) from my virgin media connection, now i know this site is online because i can access it from other internet connections but just not from my vm connection, any ideas?
Welcome to our forum, I am sorry you are having problems reaching emperor2.bounceweb.com. From the IP address it looks like you have successfully resolved so the next step would be a traceroute to the site.
Something else to consider is that they may have blocked your IP address so it may be worth contacting them and asking that question.
If you pop the hub into modem only mode you will obtain a different IP address and slightly different routing so may be handy for diagnostics.
