Wowhead.com blocking me?
Return to board index
I have a Verizon FIOS business line and a Verizon FIOS personal line. I use Firefox web browser. I am able to connect perfectly fine from my personal line, yet when I attempt to connect from my business line I am greeted by the following:
You shouldn't be here! Head to Wowhead.com.
I never had this issue before, I believe its about a week since it began. This is with either Firefox or IE and there is absolutely no filtering going on at my end (I am the network admin). Every time I try to go to
, wowhead.com or the IP address I am greeted with the same message.
For some reason, your business line still has Wowhead.com pointing to our old web server.
I'm afraid this is a DNS issue on your end. =/
I think there's also a way using some configuration file in Windows to force an IP address for invidivual domain names. If you can find out how to do that, have Wowhead.com point to 220.127.116.11.
Maybe someone can help him?
Which IP does Wowhead.com redirect you to?

I get the same IP from either line/either dns server
Here is the line in question:
Here is the line that works fine:
I get the same IP whether I use www or just the domain name.
Try contacting your isp, this definitely looks like a problem on their end.
If you're already redirected to 18.104.22.168, forcing it to redirect there probably won't do much. Feel free to keep us updated if your ISP says anything though, would be glad to help if there's anything we can do.
Can you maybe grep your site for "You shouldn't be here!"
Definitely sounds like a DNS related issue. Assuming your using windows; clear the cache on your browser (just to eliminate that as a possibility) then open a command prompt and type
It'll clear all your dns settings so they get updated from your isp, if it continues it must be at their end.
You could add an entry for wowhead in your "hosts" file to by pass the dns but it doesnt sound like that will help.
If you want to try it go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
open the "hosts" file in notepad and add the line
But as has already been said it probably won't do anygood, it'll keep you busy while waiting for a phone monkey at your isp to pick up though.
