When this happened to me back in the Snap days - the block is based on IP address. So restart your router. (or your PPP session if you are on VDSL to avoid a resync) so you get a new IP address. (check what your current one is first so you can confirm that you have a new one). If that fixes it then the DDoS block will be the problem. Also the block stopped google.com from working while google.co.nz still worked.

interesting, would it trigger because of me having a lot of tabs open and refreshing every time I start chrome??

interestingly I cannot get a new IP address from 2degrees by resetting my router, the "reconnect" button in the fritz box which supposedly does the job does nothing either. I do have the VDSL settings used because of my peculiar building (afaik that is the reason anyway)

 

Do you have a fritzbox? am I doing this wrong?
