    I have a new model (Tall) Airport and I can't connect to 2 different bank sites.

    I have had access before but started a few weeks ago.

    I have restarted the router. I have done a hard reset and reset the router up again.
    Still won't connect. Says "It can't connect to a secure server"

    I thought it was the ISP. So I connected the MBP to the router via ethernet. Still won't connect.

    bypassed the router and connected the MBP directly to the cable modem and the sites work.

    So the Apple Router is the issue for some reason.

    Anyone got a idea why my router is stopping me loading up certain sites please..

    Hi. Thanks Deany. Your linked helped heaps.

    Im grade C. Flagged as a big time spammer.

    What I don't get is how? My airport is connected to the Cable Modem and I only web, netflix and email. So how in heck has I been blacklisted.

    What I don't get is I have pulled the Airport Time Cap and replaced it with a spare 5th Gen Airport Extreme and everything works fine. The IP address I thought came from the ISP not the router.

    So how can sites be banned using one router over another?

    Based on what that report says, you need to call your ISP. What it is basically saying is that the entire range of ip addresses, not just the one assigned to your router, are on the blacklist. This is likely related to nothing you have done. Most ISPs dynamically assign IP addresses for a period of time, then they expire and they assign new ones. The IP address your ISP assigns your router is not necessarily the same day to day. The IP address you have now was assigned to another customer previously, and another before that and so on. It sounds like one more customers of your ISP have been doing some not so savory things with their service, or they were hacked, and it has resulted in the blacklisting.

    Ultimately, the responsibility for this is on your ISP. 1.) For not monitoring the traffic on their network for signs of illegal/harmful activity to not end up in this situation in the first place and 2.) not monitoring these blacklists and taking the offending IP ranges out of rotation until the problem gets resolved to protect their customers. I'd pitch a fit if this were my service provider and I found this out. Only they will be able to fix this as they will be the registered owners/controllers of the IPs in the ARIN database.
