Wifi Security

By darkmocha644 ·
This error on my home wifi network started just recently. A few days ago, I was trying to purchase a subscription from apple but verification always fails, I tried switching to mobile data and it worked successfully. There are other apps and websites I could not access anymore. It seems to be a problem with the network (my home wi-fi) since everytime I try to switch my connection to mobile data, it always works. When accessing some websites, prompt messages show "The network you are connected to has been blocked due to suspicious activity," while the other website show "Your computer/network is banned for possible bad behavior". I hope somebody can help me, its been stressing me out for days Thank you!

WiFi network has been reported for some sort of misbehaviour (visiting pirate download sites, streaming movies without license, etc.) Nothing you can do but see who else you have given access to your WiFi to and not allow them, or change your behaviour and stop doing whatever you have done.

if the site (s) have banned the IP address, the only recourse is to contact the site administrator to verify why and ask what they require to allow your IP address to access their services.
