Since we had a power cut other day I can no longer access sites.google.com or any other sites created by others via google. I just get "this site can't be reached" message.
If I change my IP address using a VPN then I can access the sites, no problem, so I assumed this was a problem with the automatic IP address assigned to the Smarthub 2 after the power came back on.
I have disconnected the hub several times to get a new public IP address but so far all IP addresses assigned to the hub do not provide access to sites.google.com. All IP addresses assigned appear to start with 109.15?.???.???
I have flushed the browse cashes and checked that this is an issue with all devices on the network, which it is!
I contacted the help Chat but all they wanted to do was reset the smarthub.
Is there anything else I can do other to use my VPN whenever I want to access these sites?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Further to this: the top ping request is without the VPN and the second one is using the VPN, so why can't the host sites be found?
