I was on the chat yesterday to ask why all of a sudden, in the last 10 days maybe, am I unable to access websites on my home network that I have accessed before.
Liveleak, best gore and not surprising porn are amongst these.
Spoke to the guy yesterday and he went through a list of things it could be like Kidsafe being on (it isn’t) and scamsafe being on (it’s not).
I told him I also could not get Safesearch to go off on google and asked him if that was talk talk doing that? He said no, we can’t do that so the problem lies with Google.
But it turns out you can do that. Says in black and white in Google’s settings that if it won’t go off contact ISP.
Now I can access these sites with my phone data, TOR or proxies but I pay you lot for the connection and you have no right to set my router to tell me what I can watch. If I want to watch a guy getting crushed by a hydraulic press, then I will!
I get home from a 8 day trip on Friday but my nephews staying at mine so he’ll ket me know if it is fixed.
@OnTheDL oce will help sort but if it a google search thing then it is google.
could u included where the issue is as in what comes up that blocks u as would help sort out the main line issue.
just take a screen shot of any thing that will help and click the photos icon at top by B / I / U
A bite of info of Forum:
The forum is not real-time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use online chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.
To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number. This can be done by clicking on your Avatar picture then click on "My Settings" followed by:- Personal Profile > Personal Information
Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.
Thank you fist replyHi yes,
i have seen that and many more like it, thanks. I’ve tried everything and the only thing it can be now is TalkTalk.
i don’t know why suddenly do this now but if it doesn’t get fixed I’ll be going back to BT.
(First reply’er, thank you for your help and advice)
@OnTheDL Hi Dave thanks.
Will see if @OCE_Michelle can help any more on this as might be other things just need looking at.
As u have made a best answer they might not reply so i have tagged Michelle in it to see if u can do any more
The results differ from saying there are NO matches for something X-rated. Just outright nothing.
if I try and get Liveleak (which is how I found out it) I get pages related to Liveleak, like their Twitter and Facebook accounts. Or links to their YouTube.
I can’t access my VPN account which I could do before. I get a message on screen saying they couldn’t determine the authenticity of the received data. And not contact Nord about it.
Now the thing is I can search successfully using Bing, yahoo and of course DuckDuckGo on my tor browser. I can’t access my vpn with bing or yahoo.........
i actually filled this in at 7:45pm tonight but it seems not to have been sent.
So yeah I found my old TalkTalk router and plugged it in but no go on any internet activity at all.
Is that because I am now on fibre and that router was for uhh not fibre!!
anyway, I’m not further forward with this wonderful problem. Have read loads of cases like mine and apparently this so called web blocking/filtering can be down to a whole range of things like your ISP doing it maybe a little over-aggressively on the top of their protection systems. Or Malware in router or computer, wrong settings somewhere, corrupted cookies and on and on.
i will call them tomorrow and see why their staff could not have explained it this way instead of ignoring my question.
Im up in 5 hours so I’m off.
Okay who did it???
Its 12:50 in the morning and I couldn’t sleep so I was just looking around my Google account, just aimlessly wandering around looking for a glimmer of hope.
And there is was, right in front of me. NO tick in the box next to Safesearch!!! It’s actually off!!
Maybe all my relentless sobbing did work afterall. What a great day, a great day indee............WAIT!!! Am I sleeping???
Had a family emergency so this took a back seat.
I’ve no idea how the WiFi is. We’re just home. I’ll check it tomorrow and ask our house sitters if they had problems.
yes this got resolved just in time for my broadband to go bonkers and for line to be completely unstable.
Had to start new topic which is great.
Thanks for your help with this issue everyone.
