When trying to sign in with my Virgin details on Sky's website in order to watch Sky Sports on my Windows laptop, I get the following error message (the code is slightly different each time):
Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://wig.sky.com/webauth?" on this server. Reference #18.d46e5668.1618399438.680c195
Does anyone know how to fix this? I've tried different browsers and cleared cache/cookies, but still no joy. The Sky app works with my Virgin login details on my Android phone, so it can't be an account problem.
The message is happening as for some reason Sky have blocked you external IP address, you will need to contact Sky to find out why you have been blocked and too get them to remove the block, there is nothing that Virginmedia can do to remove this block.

Yeah it's still happening today and has been for a few days now. I've not noticed any other websites being affected. Yeah it's only via the Windows Laptop - it works on my Android phone. Haven't tried on any others.
Would be great to get some advice on how to solve this. Thanks
Thanks for the prompt response and further information on what's going on here.
As @DJ_Shadow1966 advised in their post earlier, if you're on the same connection with other devices but they're not affected then it appears that the affected device's IP address may have been blocked/blacklisted. The connection we're providing would impact all devices it was on if that was the cause.
If possible, I would advise to contact the impacting site to see if they can assist you further with this.
