    Hi there,

    I am new to Mac and have been struggling with this issue for the last week or so: there are a few websites I cannot access anymore (such as,, and a few others...). As far as I can guess it is not:
    • strictly *.au website related (or at least I think) because I can access some others *.au websites and some other (just can't think of one right now sorry...) in *.com or *.fr don't work either...
    • my ISP (iinet in Australia) as the websites mentioned above work from my PC when I connect it from home.

    Below the result from a PING on the first 2 websites in the list above:

    PING ( 56 data bytes
    36 bytes from ( Communication prohibited by filter
    Vr HL TOS Len ID Flg off TTL Pro cks Src Dst
    4 5 00 5400 0ea6 0 0000 38 01 978d

    PING ( 56 data bytes
    --- ping statistics ---
    37 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

    I have this issue from both my iMac and my Macbook Air, on which I have set up no firewall or other specific filter. I am using a Belkin modem, on which I have desactivated the wifi to use a TimeCapsule as a wifi router. I get the same issue when I try to connect from Safari, Firefox or Chrome...

    I have exhausted all tips and tricks I have from the PC word... thanks in advance for your support to resolve this issue!

    Not sure what I did apart from updating the Time Capsule's firmware and playing with the router settings... but it's back to normal now. Sorry for the inconvenience...
