Re: Getting Sick of This!

You could try e-mailing Google and asking for assistance...

You said you have a dynamic IP - maybe someone who previously had the IP used it maliciously so they put a complete block on it?

Are all the computers on your network having this problem? Or just that one?

I dispatched an email to Google, but I doubt they'll get back to me anytime soon.

Well, it's static until I renew it, which I did, and I still have the same problem.

All of them on the network.

This happened to me a couple of years ago. I think it just resolved itself in a couple of days.

Ah well. As long as it does I'm using Bing. I may not go back if Bing works out as well as it has been, so who knows.

This sounds like a block on a particular ISP, then. Check this page for information on the error.

I sent an email to my ISP. Hopefully they'll get back with me.

Yeah, but until then I'll be using other search engines.

I had that happen to me once. I just shutdown the entire network in the house for about an hour, came back, and it was fine.

At first, thought this was going to be those stupid security code checks. I hate, hate, HATE those things!

Re: Getting Sick of This!

It was getting so frustrating because it was happening to every search request. I do hundreds of searches a day, as I go to college online, so getting that damnable CAPTCHA 100+ times a day was just too much.

Bing's doing great, by the way. I have found every result I have searched for to be very relevant to my requests. A week ago I wouldn't have given it the time of day, ardent Google supporter that I am.
