After being away for a few days, we've come home to discover that our smart TV now won't load Disney+; it gives a code 73 error [which indicates Disney+ thinks I'm in a geographic location that's not allowed service, apparently].

This was also happening on my phone until I switched off the WiFi and went onto mobile data; then it was ok. It's still ok back on the WiFi; but assume there may be some cached location going on.

Can't cast from phone to Chromecast in the house either; the Disney+ app loads but then gives a 'load_error' message.

Anyone else seeing this? Wondering if it's a IP Geolocation issue, given I saw the same issue on phone; but not on mobile data.

Open a ticket with your ip they recently purchased some ip blocks may be it's not yet geolocated .. also check what shows up on ip info on Google..

Thanks; I was going to leave it 24 hours to see if it self-resolves. 

 

When I googled "my ip address", the first page that came up (I don't recall what that was exactly now) did locate me as being North of Auckland, which is a good start - at least it's the right country!

 

(I'm actually Wellington-ish; but I also understand there is no Wellington 'pop' so Chorus probably does send my traffic to Auckland to get onto the Quic network, as I understand things)

Update:

 

Disney+ still not working on SmartTV.

 

Website also won't load on my MacBook when on house WiFi; but does when I share my mobile data.

 

No changes to the house network, I don't have any form of VPN running; I do have a piHole, bypassing it makes no difference.

 

Have rebooted ONT, Router, Pi, and TV/Macbook; no difference.

 

For the record, here are some traceroutes:

Interesting that the name resolution is quite different, and that the Quic version rapidly heads offshore, by hop #6 it's in the US (based on ping time and nwax.net address).  TBH, I'm also surprised that Mobile data hops #12/#13 are > 300ms response; but I'm sure there are reasons involving the multiple IPs that reply....

 

Will raise a case next, I guess.

You using Quic’s DNS servers? I’m in a similar IP range as you and don’t have problems. 

 

Also try enabling IPv6 😊

DNS: The Pi points at the router, which I assume is using Quic's DNS (resolves to recdns1.vetta.net & recdns2.vetta.net).

 

IPv6: Sadly, my current mesh/router won't negotiate an IPv6 connection with Quic (and didn't with my previous provider either) - buggy/incomplete/incompatible IPV6 implementation from D-Link, I presume.  Buying a newer mesh isn't a financial priority at the moment either.

I'm having some weird issues as well.

 

On 4g with one NZ, and spark on neighbours WiFi I can access my Plex server from the internet and a few others.

 

However on quic they all show offline, this wasn't the way before. 

 

The only recent change I made based on chatter here was using Quic DNS but I've reverted that and no joy.

 

Hoping the network maintenance is it this early morning coming helps?

That sounds like to me you've got DNS Rebinding Protection turned on: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=194&topicid=309388

Thank you. Just double checking I can see how that affects my router/Plex.

 

But other people's stop working as well?

 

I had a quick look and I can't see where to disable DNS rebind on my fortigate (have a NFR unit with expired lics but it's still good for VPN and basics).

@jamesrt Give IPv6 another shot when you get a chance.

Update : fixed for me by changing to use 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 as DNS for the fgate and also the DHCP DNS given to clients.

 

 

 

Will repeat DNS set to quic DNS and test as it could have been other things as well.

Huh, interesting.  If I go into an incognito window, then reddit.com blocks me:

 

 

There's definitely something weird about this IP subnet....  Could this be an "IP reputation" sort of issue?

 

Still waiting to hear anything from the ticket I raised...

The Reddit one is something they're aware of with one of their new ranges. Reddit are just super slack with updating their IP GeoIP data.

 

There have been some changes with how they handle IPv6 and I think enabling IPv6 on your network should solve the majority of your problems - you should give this another shot. On the Dlink set IPv6 to Auto Configuration (SLAAC/DHCPv6). Else buying a static IP (which is fully automatic) will give you a new IP and also comes with other benefits such as being included on their geofeeds and a V6 Subnet.

 

These IP ranges are not new, I've got a static on the same subnet as yours and don't have a problem with anything however I do use IPv6. Testing Disney+ in my case without IPv6 works.

Sadly, nope.

 

 

I'll dig out the previous ISP supplied router and try setting that up; it probably has better IPv6 support (as in "I'm pretty sure it works!").

OK, old router does negotiate IPv6, but the SmartTV doesn't support IPv6, so end-result no effective difference.

 

Did make the laptop work, but that's not really the issue - don't normally watch on the laptop.  Phone, yes (commuting), and TV.

Another GZer PM'd me and said a static fixed the identical issue for him, btw; so I guess that's where I'm going for a fix.
