The Meijer wifi on Ann Arbor Saline is banned from here.
Probably a VPN issue. Either that, or Sucuri views activity coming from that domain as suspicious for whatever reason.

The only way their IP range would be banned is if a banned user registered his or her account while using their wifi.

Rate This - there's nothing in your IP ranges shown on this thread that is currently on my IP ban list. If you are using a VPN, that might be the issue. Otherwise, I'm stumped.

I do have IP and geoblocking capability (by country) via my Sucuri security software suite, but I've not made any changes to those specifications in at least a couple years.

The below article might be useful:

If there are specific IPs you would like for me to whitelist in Sucuri, feel free to send me a private message.

I started having issues yesterday with IP blocking. It seems to happen when I move away from my browser and come back.

It can be remedied by changing VPN locations, and after a while, I can return to a known IP and I have no problem. It's a strange thing that just started.

That's freaky. I will try some things in my control panel to see if that improves the situation.

Add DTW Wi-Fi to the ban list.

Session IP validation is turned off on my site, which is a common culprit for such issues, so I'm at a loss.

It's either an issue with certain Wi-Fi providers (in terms of how they access the internet), or potentially, an issue with my Sucuri software settings.

I'm wonder if Turkeytop is having problems. He's been off for a while.

MW,

Right now my Mozilla browser is being denied but Duck Duck Go and Chrome are fine. Same IP.

I changed a setting on my Sucuri server side security software just now. Hopefully this will reduce the access issues.
