Access Denied issues (again)

Yet again I'm unable to access e bay. I keep getting the message:

Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://www.ebay.co.uk/myb/WatchList" on this server.

Reference #18.b3476768.1484593890.94c729b8 when I try to go to my watch list, or :

Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://www.ebay.co.uk/" on this server.

Reference #18.a4476768.1484594089.7afd9afb when just typing in e bays' address. Have contacted e bay & they have no issues with my account or my ip address. When I use an alternative internet provider, or use Virgin from an alternative address, I can access e bay. I have already had a replacement hub from Virgin, installed. Worked for a few days, then access denied again. It is on ALL devices, whether hardwired or wifi: 3 PCs, 2 tablets, a laptop, a notebook, & 2 smartphones. Virgin tells me to contact the tech guys.....who have no idea what is wrong. The first time they sent out the new hub, the 2nd time the guy said it was because my security package had expired that day (go figure!). No account was taken of the fact that I use different security applications on different devices. What more can I do? I'm not tech savvy, but, when all factors are taken into account, it appears to me that it is something to do with Virgins equipment....perhaps the wiring to my property or one of the street boxes. Could someone give me some (simple, please!) suggestions?

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

Ask ebay to decipher the reference numbers? If the new hub worked for a few days then not it does seem like some block or ban is being triggered, unless the hub did an overnight firmware update. Anything in hub logs to suggest that.

Is anyone else piggy backing on your connection, do you have any unsecured wifi?

Is it only ebay? Try ikea as that has been reported by others

Are all your devices malware free. An infected device could be triggering an ip block. 

Would running wireshark help at all. That is suggested by vm in a different problem thread

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

All of the devices have security on them, are regularly scanned. No one is able to gain access to our connection, my husband locked it down as soon as it was installed. Ebay are investigating at the moment, although I will ask them if they can decipher the reference numbers. Will also try Ikea & see what happens. My next door neighbour, who is also a Virgin customer, has no problems at all. Never heard of wireshark, but will take a look. Will keep you posted!

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

IKEA is the same!....for some reason, if I type EBAY or IKEA as one word, in lower case, it keeps asking me to correct them, weird.

Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/" on this server.

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

there is also trace route - google it- at this stage, anything that could provide a clue is worth a try. 

What is in the hub logs, has it powercycled or updated itself from when those sites were working

as I said in another thread it is so unlikely that 2 independent sites both decide to block ( and in the other case spontaneously unblock) , that it must be some middle man device or code.

You have ruled out a faulty hub ( via a swap out) so hub firmware/ software is probably the next thing to scrutinise

 what exactly is asking you to correct single word EBAY / IKEA - that suggests some spell check program is running ??? if I put simply EBAY into chrome it just goes to a google search, as expected.

as its a multi device issue, this is hardly worth asking but are you set for UK keyboard, UK location... could that E or A  be not the standard E or A

 what happens if you try other ebay sties like ebay.com, ebay.ie, ebay.ca ....

UK keyboard & location. With the EBAY / IKEA thing, that's only when I write on this forum! Tried the other EBAY sites, still access denied. Am trying to do some research on Hashimoto's disease (hypothyroidism) & it comes up with Access Denied for a couple of those pages, as well. Going to ring the tech guys.

ok - let's ignore that forum single word glitch - i had tried lower case ikea in edge, ie , chrome - all good

 i googled Hashimoto's disease and the first 3 search results all came up OK for me

 traceroute should show the path from you to an access denied site, then I'd do it again for a working site & see if I could see any differences in the results

 and post the results here for the smart guys to look at. I have never used wire shark, just read about it in the other thread ( called 2ac disconnects ). i think the outputs from wireshark are very geeky so it's only worth doing if someone agrees to look at them for you.

 you can get your hub firmware and software versions via a login to the hub I think

 if you then forced a factory reset by prodding it with a pin, you could see if those versions changed and if the blocked sites stayed blocked.

i think with VM tech guys you should request a different hub - e.g. if you have hub2 , go to hub3 .... if you have 3 go back down to 2...

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

Have been on the phone since I last posted: long & the short of it, is 'nothing wrong'! In modem mode, all sites are accessible BUT there is no wifi available...this is unacceptable as I have 2 students needing wifi access, upstairs. So, I'm back in router mode. They agreed, eventually, to send out the new superhub 3. Apparently it is the very latest product, everything WILL work.....I'll reserve judgement. After 2 hrs with the phone glued to my ear, watching all sorts going on with my computer due to remote access, I'm fed up.

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

Hi lilwead, 

Thanks for taking the time to post on the community. 

Sorry to learn that you are having issues with accessing ebay. I can see you have had great advice from cybmole which is great, thank you.

As the website is working through modem mode and not router mode, are you able to post trace routes in both modes for us to take a look at please? We can see if there are any issues between the both.

I'm glad that the Hub 3 will be sent to you and hopefully it will resolve this issue.

Let me know how you get on

Sam

Re: Access Denied issues (again)

-> staff

 good to see you here but please read the whole thread 

 she has already told you that modem mode works and that the problem is present on PC and on mobile devices

 so investigating browser settings is pointless

 there are several other access denied thread, you should really merge otr study them all and look for commonality.

 for example there is a different poster in a different thread who was also blocked from both ebay and ikea.
