Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

It would seem then that  baidu.com maybe dropping network traffic originating from your Virgin Media IP address, to confirm this try:

ping baidu.com

64 bytes from 123.125.115.110 (123.125.115.110): icmp_seq=101 ttl=48 time=140 ms
64 bytes from 123.125.115.110 (123.125.115.110): icmp_seq=102 ttl=48 time=141 ms
64 bytes from 123.125.115.110 (123.125.115.110): icmp_seq=103 ttl=48 time=143 ms

Do you see similar output to that shown above. If not consider temporarily turning Modem mode on your Virgin Media Hub to on or off, whichever is the inverse of its current setting, and see if that allows access to baidu.com.

Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

If there is a block on baidu.com for your IP address it will most likely only block IP protocol traffic not a ping which uses the ICMP protocol.

Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

I did ping the baidu.com and IP address, not pingable. showing results were 'Request timed out'.

just bear in mind when i use the same computer connect to my company's guest wifi, it works fine. also i use my vodafone phone as hotspot, there is no issue. and also this worked in my home before.

i don't think the issue can be resolved on my end. agree?

What happened when you temporarily turned Modem mode on your Virgin Media Hub to on or off, whichever is the inverse of its current setting, to see if that allowed access to baidu.com; note, switching modem mode utilises another IP address assigned to your hub.

I agree the issue cannot be resolved at your end because I suspect that Baidu are dropping traffic originating from your current IP address.

Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

I don't remember the password, how to reset it? by the way, it seems all chinese websites have the problem. this is really disappointing

Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

Check the Hub exterior for a label listing the Settings password or paper work supplied with the it.  If you cannot locate a Settings password for your Hub then there is no point to resetting the Hub. If you do locate it then try the following: Resetting your Virgin Media Hub.

Re: some chinese websites cannot be opened

If you have a hub 3, the default password is on the label on the base of the hub.

With the older hubs the default password is changeme (Change me - geddit?) 🙂
