My Dad has been having trouble getting on to www.numismaster.com via his Telstraclear cable connection for at least the last few weeks, possibly up to a couple of months.

What the site should look like:


What the site looks like via my Dad's connection:


i.e. When accessed via my Dad's cable connection, none of the main content is retrieved.

I have tried the following:
  • Different browsers, clearing cookies and cache
  • Connecting directly to the modem, rather than going through the router
  • Connecting to the site via https://
  • Adding an X-Forwarded-For header to the http request

But the only ways I have been able to get the site to load are
  • Connecting via a VPN
  • Using a different internet connection (works via my 2degrees 3g connection)

I think he is using the correct DNS servers (203.97.78.43, 203.97.78.44)

Does anyone else on cable have this issue?
Could it be caused by TCL's transparent proxy, or is it more likely to be a problem with the website itself?

Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure its not a browser issue. If I connect directly, I get no content. If I connect via a vpn, the page loads just fine in the same browser.

Probably the crappy proxy TCL run. It breaks the web for me every day.

Thanks guys, I'm starting to think this is just a weird bug at the numismaster.com end. I'm pretty much stumped for now.
