Maybe it’s some kind of maintenance issue related to the weather then, concerning specific routes? Because if either Cloudflare or our ISPs were intentionally blocking anything, wouldn’t it be permanent? Why would it just be a random and temporary issue?
"Thank you for contacting Cloudflare Support. I’m sorry to read that you are experiencing some difficulties here.
We indeed had service degradation in IAH colo between yesterday 1600 and today 0125 UTC, and a fix has been deployed at 2021-01-20 01:24:36 UTC
Sorry for the inconvenience, please let us know if you still have issues."
It’s really weird. It’s happened twice now within the last two weeks. Everything seems to be up and working good today. What’s really strange is that it seems to only affect certain ISP’s. Both times it’s happened I can pull it up over LTE and other ISP’s have no problem pulling them up but for whatever reason our local ISP cannot.
I’ve never had any issue with 126.96.36.199. In my case, switching that out had no effect.
The issue @darynkyle and I are having seems to be related to the actual lines and/or our ISP in our areas. In any case, 188.8.131.52 functions just fine; it’s more that we cannot access websites hosting their DNS through the Cloudflare network (which is completely unrelated to running your router or devices through 184.108.40.206).
