Port Scan blocked, internet is off. What do I do?


Hello, this is Danny.

Every 7 days, I've been getting constant pop-ups of a port scan block, and shortly after that, my internet cuts off with no way to get it back on.

By "no way", I tried turning off and on my internet, and when trying to access the pages I frequently go to, I get an error message saying something along the lines of "[URL] IP address cannot be found."

The only thing I could do to fix this situation is to restart my computer, but the very moment I do that, I expect another pattern of port scan blocks and internet drops like a weekly cycle.

Is there a way to permanently end this? I'm tired of restarting my computer as the only way to fix the same problem repeatedly.

Let me know when you have a viable solution.

    Hi @Regent

    Have you tried the steps posted above by @Gjoksi? This is an old thread, so I'm not sure if Danny818 hasn't replied back by now with any resolution found, he won't be. Your best bet would be the above post.

    Kind regards,
