My question is, “Do any of you use XPLORNET as your Internet Service Provider?
The reason I’m asking is that for as long as I can remember … probably when we moved here and had to change our ISP because of the area we moved to, I have had difficulty when I go to comment on a blog whose URL does not end in wordpress.com but just .com Bloggers who have paid a premium to have more control etc. over their blog site….. Several times I did try to broach the issue with Support but didn’t have any luck with finding out the reason … until now!
When I try to post a comment on these .com sites I would get an error message saying ‘comment cannot be posted’. Then I learned a little trick that if I went to one or two or three other posts and then back to the one I want to comment on, finally the WORDPRESS bar at the top of the post would appear, and then I knew I could go and comment without the error message.
Lately, more and more sites are becoming .com ones and so it has been very frustrating to try and leave a comment and sometimes I just could not ever do so.
Recently one (or more involved) WordPress Support staff persevered and we tested everything possible to see if we could find out, and the very last suggestion was to take my computer to a different location with a different ISP and see what happened. Well…. guess what? It worked using a different ISP. However, it also could involve the router . The people at XPLORNET were very good and spent approximately 4 hours + trying various settings and IP addresses etc etc but unfortunately couldn’t still find out the reason. I tried the ‘ROUTER” company and they weren’t as helpful.
So, back to my question. Does anyone that is reading this use XPLORNET and have they had similar issues or not had … because if you don’t then it might help to know that it is maybe the router… which is ‘Netgear’ in my case although I had a different one previously and it was still a problem. … or perhaps some of your settings make it ‘not’ a problem for you ??? Clear as mud, right? Hope I’ve explained it okay.
I would so love it if someone maybe can help with this frustrating issue…. Thanks Diane
