Blocked by my OpenDNS settings as "This site was categorized in: Pornography, Nudity, Sexuality, Adult Themes, Photo Sharing, Visual Search Engines, Lingerie/Bikini" so I whitelisted it and tried again - responds to ping but no response whatsoever from an HTTP request.

Is there any sort of login or forum on the site, and you have been banned?

There's also the possibility that for some reason your latest IP address has been blocked, if you are on a dynamic one and have reconnected since last time.

there is a login but its optional ,, I guess restarting the router will give me a new IP .. I am not too keen on resetting as I don't want to trigger a training mode on plusnet..

I've been having a lot of trouble accessing the site, but it seems ok at the moment. It may be being blocked inadvertently by BT or the site itself may be having issues as it seems a new site.

Why should rebooting your router cause "training mode"? It is completely harmless to turn it off every night and on again in the morning.

That's good to know Roberto ,,, I thought the system picks it up as being unstable and raises your noise ratio to compensate .. I don't know if it works the same on fibre but I am just on normal adsl....

On ADSLx it is disconnecting/reconnecting several times in an hour that makes it raise the SNRM smile. You've nothing to worry about doing a single one.

Best done well inside daylight hours for highest sync.

Ah, I replied to the post before the one saying you rebooted, and hadn't seen the one after it.

The noise margin is always reset at a re-sync/reboot to the level determined in the DLM. It then varies all the time depending on the actual noise. If noise goes up the margin falls, and vice versa. Which is why daylight sync's are normally faster, as there is less noise.

The figure immediately after it sync's is worth knowing, as that tells us the DLM setting, which us the one to worry about. It used to default to 6dB, but these days on a clean line it sets to 3dB.

Did your IP address change when you rebooted? But still can't get to the site?

You can get a new IP without rebooting. If you do a disconnect/connect via your router that stops and starts the PPP session without losing sync with the exchange and hence no risk of triggering training mode.

On sites like this it is most often that a image somewhere on the site was reported to IWF and thus on a block list and all site requests are then via a filter, and for bigger sites this can cause the side effect of breaking a site.

Depending on how the filtering is implemented e.g. maybe several boxes used then its not impossible

Plusnet are in process of migrating to a new dedicated "Network" away from the BT shared one, on Plusnet's own forums there are complaints about missing packets and DNS issues which seem related to new network - so it may be only some of Plusnet can't access it
