    Talking FIXED **** Newbie cant get on wiihacks at home?

    Hi all,
    Although I am not new to the wii I am new to here.
    I have a very strange issue that REALLY annoyed me last night. The issue that I have is that i can get onto here at work, but not at home?
    I have 5 pc's, inc laptops, at home and NONE of them can get onto this website. It just comes up as page cannot be displayed????
    I turned ALL antivirus and firewalls off and cant find any reason for this?
    I can get on any other website without issue.
    Is there anything that anyone can think of that may be stopping this?
    I dont see how my ISP (Be) would block it??

    Any ideas??

    I am having to copy guides into word docs to take back home to read, but i dont get the videos etc this way (

    I really like this site too.

    HELP

    regards

    Kev

    Can't explain it once you turned off all your firewalls and antivirus programs. We have recently seen some problems that appear to be maybe a combination of the Chrome browser and Kaspersky's Internet Security protection program-that has been reported now to the Kaspersky folks.

    Firefox people report no problem; unknown if any use the Kaspersky though. I am moving your post to the Registration/login problem forum so that the site administrators will be made aware of and , I hope, will help you to fix your problem.

    Hi gen3sf,
    Ah ok, many thanks for moving it to the correct location
    I am running firefox and also tied it in ie, same result.
    It must be something local to my home connection but i just cant find what??
    I have used kaspersky before but switched to bit defender. This is turned off completely at the mo though.
    I was wondering if it was something in my advanced settings for firefox or ie??
    Strange but annoying all the same.
    Just hope i can sort it so that i have access to all the info for nice evening reading

    Thanks

    Kev
