Login not possible "from this IP address"

I had this happening a while ago and just now again - I couldn’t log into the forum and got a message that it wouldn’t be possible from my IP. I got a new one via my router and now it works. What’s going on?

Dunno. Maybe someone with the same ISP is banned…?

Same thing happened to me on Monday. It solved itself after a while, has not happened since.

It just happened again. I didn’t change the IP from my post before. But trying to log in some minutes ago wouldn’t work. Maybe the message is somewhat misleading, and something else is going on. I’ll try a few things next time, like booting into Linux.

the forum is fronted by cloudflare. So probably the endpoint IP has been banned in the past and at another moment you get another endpoint.

i;ve gotten this similar image a few times now since about a week ago, and i never turnoff my modem, so unless my isp rotates my external IP unknown to me (or a disconnect here and there), my external should be the same, incase if this was an IP problem.
