    Hello!

    For about 2-3 days now, it's become impossible to load certain websites. These websites include www.mediafire.com, and there is software called "Hamachi" to simulate a virtual lan server, which also won't connect at all. Hamachi gets stuck at "Probing" and mediafire.com completely fails to load. I have used websites like isitdown to check if mediafire is down for everyone of just me, and it's just me.

    I have restarted the router 4-5 times, and I've tried accessing it from all computers in our home, but none of them work.

    I am using Windows 8 and am with MWEB.

    Please help,
    Ruben

    That sounds like an ISP problem
    it is quite likely blocked by your ISP
    I have friends in SA who inform me that when they reach close to their monthly limits, sites like mediafire and other sharing sites get blocked
    Most SA ISPs do severely limit what you can download and give what is seen in rest of the world as very low bandwith limits for a very expensive price

    Check with ISP first

    Thanks for the info. I'll call them later today to check on their side. I'll report back on what has been said.
