So EVGA forums have been giving me a "cannot connect to server" type of error for a couple months now, I have narrowed it down to being on comcast and my router, as the only way I can access it is on my phone with wifi off. None of my 3 computers on any browser, nor my phone will load the page on wifi/ethernet.

So I went into router settings and there is no parental block..
what could possibly be causing this?? Where should I begin to look. It seems to only be the EVGA forum that won't work which is super strange.

Also I just discovered if I turn on my Kaspersky VPN trial I can get on the website... what does that tell us?
