Blocked Website on Win 10 but Works with IPVanish

<< < (3/3)

NY2KW:
The plot thickens.  I found I could also not access a cloud server for one of my remote ham radios with either of my wifi LANs (FiOS or Optimum Router).  No opportunity for using a VPN as the radio is a closed proprietary running some windows version.  I forgot I had a outdoor access point (TP-Link) connected via a inexpensive gig-switch directly to the same Optimum Modem that my Optimum wifi home router is connected.  I forgot about this SSID because I can only access this outdoor wifi access point from a corner of my house where my ham radios are.  Lo and behold if I connect to this wifi SSID - I can connect to the 'blocked' website plus I can now connect to my ham radio cloud.  Forgetting about the FiOS system and focusing just on the Optimum - i have a Optimum cable modem with two Ethernet ports. One port is directly connected to a Wifi router in the main part of my house while the other Ethernet port is connected to a switch feeding a TP-Link access point.  If I check my 'public' IP address through a website like speedtest it shows the identical IP address for both wifi LANs but one LAN is blocking my access to at least 2 sites while the other wifi works fine.   Does this make sense to anyone??

Is one using IPv6 and one using IPv4 maybe?

Thanks I checked with the website you gave and all working only IPv4 not v6. There must be some setting in the Optimum modem/wifi router that is different for the TP-Link wifi access point directly connected to the cable modem...  despite them both sharing the same ip address from Optimum.
