Hi I'm having this problem with my internet. I get the following error message when trying to go to certain websites. noticeably gaming related website battle.net, steam etc. However this problem is not limited to chrome it persists in other browser and even blocks the steam and battle net clients from connecting. This morning I did a full restore of windows 10 back to factory settings so I am only running standard windows firewall settings. Is this a problem with my isp (which is bigpipe)? my computer? my modem? what can I do to fix this?

Have you tried resetting your router or using a VPN

Yeah using a vpn gets around the problem but I would like to solve the problem.

Perhaps parental control is activated on your connection?

Yes - parental controls are enabled by the account holder. If this is you then you're best to turn this off.

 

BigPipe app --> Reset Modes (near the top right).
