unable to access some websites when connected to my home network

I have a number of websites that are hosted on a server in the UK. When connected to my home network, I cannot access these sites.


On my phone I cannot access them either, as soon as I turn off wifi and switch to cellular then access is immediate.


that is my control panel login for my hosting server, but I simply get a message that the site cannot be reached

Try disabling the Xfi Advanced Security feature as a work-around for now and see. It's buggy ! And there is currently no way for an end-user to be able to whitelist anything;

Note that when I try to follow that link in Firefox I get:

apologies for the delay in responding, yes, the certificate is bad...because my host has changed names and I prefer to use the IP address directly.


when I use my cell provider I get that message and since it's the same site I have used for about 15 years, I know I'm ok with it. 


If I'm connected by my home network, I don't even get that far.
