Access Denied on websites

Just joined

Good Evening


We've been having an issue for the past few days where it looks like our IP is banned on certain websites or something? We have been unable to access websites such as,, Some websites like Amazon gave me a captcha where it thought I was a bot, so there seems to be something strange at play but its totally outside my scope to fix.


I've tried restarting the router and modem (we use modem mode) changing the DNS server we use etc, but I'm at a loss here.

Note the ASOS web link is http and not https.  

A commercial website is normally not available via an insecure http connection.

Usually sites return status of 301 (Moved Permanently) to redirect browser to HTTPS;  in this case the error message remains the same even when using HTTPS.
