Some people can only connect via tapatalk as in my case, also on my phone's data only.
If I try tapatalk through wifi, my ip is banned
If I connect through wifi my ip is banned.
If a desktop is used via wifi, same, ip is banned.

Worth mentioning i use chrome on my desktop.

So for me is tapatalk/browser on data only.

I checked in with my ‘tech nerd’ friend and this is what he said. “Perhaps WW is submitting my IP to a blacklist. Maybe it’s caused by a misconfigured module. Just a guess”

Checked the IP banned list and your IP is definitely not on it. Hopefully the issues works out. It seems like those with issues are asscessing from Tapatalk.

Have you tried using just a browser to connect?

Yes, I've tried with using a browser and it didn't work. I've asked my ISP to remove the banned IP from Spamhaus but a few hours later it was back on the blacklist. Since there seems to be a flood of similar cases I wonder if recently WW started using Spamhaus to stop spamming, and this action had an impact on many WW users. To be clear, I don't send spam so no actions on my part is causing my IP to be blocked. It's likely that someone else on my ISP's network is the bad guy. Can you confirm if WW just started using Spamhaus recently? For several weeks I've been suspicious topics with links that I not dare click on. So someone at WW probably took actions to stop it.

Just a quick update on my IP ban. I reported it to my ISP and today my ISP said the source of the spam has been identified, and that the IP in question has been taken off of the Spamhaus blacklist. I just checked it on Spamhaus and it's good. And now I'm able to post here via my home WiFi.

What is the IP that’s been banned? Perhaps you need to contact your ISP.
