Hi Ivo,

I'm sorry to read you have no access with your device.

On this forum there are no banning lists whatsoever.

Unfortunately, I have no idea either. Perhaps the community of the forum software itself may help?

Hi Hardy,
Thanks for the reply.
The forum software community does not allow new members to register,so can not aska question.
Because with 3computers, 3 different operating systems and 3 different browser it does not work to log in or register a new member it can not be my hardware.
Everything has been reset to factory defaults.
I discovered however that when logging in with the public signal I have a different ip address.
So contacted my internet provider to give me a new ip address, but they can not do that , only way is to shut of my modem for 48 hours, no phone, no internet, no television.
And I hear from the atc controler in the kitchen this will not happen!

It seems though that my modem has reset itself 10 times the last 24 hours, so completely shutdown and reboot.
Tommorow getting a new one, hope this solves it
:) :)

Hello Ivo,

the first thing I would try is to eliminate each and everything to do with wireless, and to trip over fall back on some strictly wire-based connection. If you have the chance, that is. People nowadays often have too much faith in WiFi and such, in my opinion :D
The idea being to eliminate (by proving that "wired" does work) any permissions issues or similar from ISP, forum, OS, Significant Other, radio interference by game-playing kids, whatever.

Or did you try that already? I couldn't quite figure it out from your reports.

More wishes for good luck!

Cheers,
Martin

Ivo,

Have you tried logging in from somewhere away from your home and its router/modem? This would of course use a different router and hopefully a different Internet Service Provider (ISP). I would try your iPad at a couple of general sites such as nyt.com and another site where you have to login. If all these tests work, then then try aerowinx.com and see if changing the ISP and router works.

I looked at how my iPad is set, knowing that I can login to aerowinx. I also checked and see that I also have IOS 8.2 (it's very buggy, IMO).

In the "Settings/Safari" menu, Safari is setup as follows: "Block Pop-ups" = On; "Block Cookies" = Allow from Websites I Visit; "Fraudulent Website Warning" = On.

I see that there is a "Clear History and Website Data" action just below the "General" settings for Safari. I have been able to restore my ability to login to aerowinx.com on my Windows 7 PC in Firefox by clearing all caches and the browsing history. Thus, I recommend trying this "Clear History and Website Data" option and see if that helps.

Also, under the "Advanced" menu item of Safari, I have the following settings: "Javascript" is On; the "Web Inspector" is Off. I see in the "Website Data" menu item of Safari, there is a website-specific list of stored information items. There is a red-text menu item at the bottom of this list that says "Show All Sites". Perhaps you should search through this long list to find an entry for aerowinx.com and consider deleting this item, hoping to start over with a clean record for aerowinx.com on your iPad. If you can get this to work on the iPad, perhaps it will then provide enough clues to clear out your PC browser caches and other data records?

In my iPad, when I clicked the "Remove All Website Data" menu item below this list, a pop-up was provided that says:


"Remove Website Data
This will clear data that could be used for tracking, but is also used by website to preserve login information and to speed up browsing."


If you right-swipe any of the web sites listed in this Safari/Website Data menu, you can delete the entry for that web site only. Perhaps if you delete any aerowinx.com data that is stored here then perhaps you can then login.

My limited Windows 7/Firefox experience has taught me that clearing out caches and history records, etc, my ability to login to aerowinx.com has always been restored. It does also clear out the record of what threads I have read, so for my first new access to aerowinx I then have to read all recent threads to make sure I don't miss something. After that, it remembers what I've already read and changes the thread icon color to show unread threads.

I hope I'm not overlooking one of your posts where you mentioned that you tried some or all these things on your iPad. I believe if you can get one device to login reliably and in a stable fashion, you can then work on the other computers and browsers with enough information to repair them, too. Thus, if you first try out your iPad at a new wifi location with a different type of router/modem, you may gain significant information, especially if your iPad suddenly works at the alternate location. After eliminating your router/modem by testing your login at the new location, you might consider the above iPad-Safari parameters. You should record all iPad settings before changing them, of course!

(On a slightly related note, I'm in the middle of diagnosing and repairing my newly erratic Windows 7 PC, and I have once again learned to only repair or change one thing at a time. If I change or "fix" more than one thing at a time before rebooting, then I won't know what really helped or fixed the system! I need to install additional patience modules in my brain!)

Just to add, I access this Forum from many PCs, many OSes, many devices, and it just works, so there is no fundamental problem in your setup. What do all your attempts have in common?

Just to add, I access the forum from multiple devices, and I'be been simultaneously logged in on a Windows PC, an iMac, and my phone. So multiple simultaneous access points is also not a problem.

I agree with martin, can you plug the Internet directly into your computer and avoid the router? See if that works.

Can an iPad be connected by wire at all ? It certainly has no 'normal' RJ-45 slots.

I meant conducting this test with the laptop or PC, which via wireless also seem to give Ivo a hard time.

Hi,
today the technician of my internet provider was here. At first a bit skeptic of my problem, but when He tried to login from his own laptop and could not login he was convinced there was a problem.
Since my modem / router had reset internally multiple times I got a new one.
Sadly enough this did not solved the problem. after some more testing he found out that my power adapters where the reason. I have two different circuits, 1 for interactive television, and 1 for boosting my wifi signal. They kind of created a loop so that this created different IP addresses , and caused the reset. He eliminated the tv circuit and since I had a spare devolo power adapter all was now on 1 set of devolos.
Again no luck, still no login. Then a final trick, in the network settings disabled IPv6 and bingo.
I can now login on 2 pc's, the ipad however is more difficult because I can not disable IPv6; don't even know it is possible.
I can however login using this method.
I have 2 wifi signals, 1 from the internet providers modem, and 1 from the devolo power adapter wifi.
clear the internet and cookies settings , login to a different wifi signal, clear the internet nd cookies again, now I can login, but only once.
to login a second time , I need to do the same again, clear, new wifi signal, clear.
Cumbersome method, but can not be helped for the moment.
I thank you all for your time and help.

I'm glad you've got a partial solution. Thanks for updating us.

I think I get it now - the devolo seems to be an "internet over the power lines" gadget.

My very uncertain interpretation of your report is that you in effect had two routers or something like that, creating instability in access to the outside internet. I've personally seen that before - depending on how the overall system interprets the situation, sometimes it sort of works, but sometimes it creates an infinite loop between the two devices.

Regardless, I'm very glad you're making progress!

I've systematically installed Switches in my house instead of routers or other devices. This way, they're self-configuring and I'm sure they won't do something bad to my home network. I'm also glad I've mostly used wired connections to my home devices, with the exception of our various iGadgets. AFAIK they must connect by wifi only, but one can plug the power connector into one's PC instead of the power brick. Then one only has immediate access to the Photos folder unless the App provider has gone to the trouble of providing USB access to files within their App. Goodreader does this, which is vastly faster than wifi for local file transfers.

Thanks for updating us. Good luck in fixing the remaining login difficulties!

Power adapters sporting WiFi and creating (wrong) IP addresses? :shock:
Is that the "Internet Of Things" of which they now so fashionably speak? :D

Glad to hear about some progress, though!

Sadly enough I can not use cables, the only possible way is to drill a hole in the wall and go outside 50 meters and then back in. And dig a little trench in the ground .

Hi
A week ago got a new router/modem from my internet provider because could not log in on this site, this did not cured the problem, disabling IPv6 did.
This problem was then handed over to a team of specialists at my internet provider.
Today I was contacted by such a specialist over the phone.
He could reproduce the problem and could also not log in unless IPv6 disabled.
So we run a test for 20 minutes, I pinged continuous the IPv6 and IPv4 IP address of the Aerowinx site. Both at the same time in 2 different command prompts.
He on his end did the same, from the +/- 2500 packages send IPV6 lost 6, IPV4 lost 1.

Since both computers, logged on from 2 different places and connected perfect
with both protocols he told me that most likely the problem is the handling of cookies at the IPV6 level.
I am not a computer wizard, just relay a message.
hope this helps someone with he same problem.

Hi,

I think this forum software (UseBB version 1) does not support IPv6. The developpers have planned making a version 2 (which was supposed to support IPv6) in the distant past, but this plan was discarded a few years ago. The support is now limited to minor bug fixes only.

I don't know what the consequence will be if this version will not support IPv6.

The reason why I chose this forum software out of many others is because it was rock stable, strict to html standards, well designed, and free of schnickschnack. I hope we don't have to move to another software and restart with blank contents.

It probably would already help if your server stupidly stops responding to IPv6. This is not in vogue, but as long as the vast majority of people have IPv4, not responding at all on IPv6 isn't major. Working unreliably is far worse.

Hi Folks,

i had the same Problem since last week, when I got a new WiFi Router. I couldn't log in. From all my devices like PC and Smartphone no chance. The message "The feature is disabled because this board can not set or read cookies with your broser" appears and no way to log in. I restart the router and all that stuff like mentioned above, nothing works. Then I took a phone call with a technican from my provider. The solution is- in the WiFi setting i must disable the IPv6 activity button, and then it works again. I like to tell it here, may someone has the same problem. I'am fine now and happy, to be back :P . I'am not very educated in Computers, but i think it is the same what Hoppie mentioned before. The technican said, it is nowadays standard to activate IPv6, and to disable it it can be cause other proplems like the network. Anyway, you can switch the button on demand when you need it for other things.

Best Regards

Volker

Hi Volker,
I could not solve the problem unless disabeling IPV6,
On my Ipad however I could not do this, so the last months I can not post using the Ipad, only reading , and the network post also not available!

Now I am on vacation in Spain , and My Ipad works flawless, no problem at all.
So maybe the router is the source off the trouble?

Hi Ivo,

as far as i understand, the problem is defently the router. When I connect to another network or Wifi, i don't have any Problems. As i sad, disable the IPV6 solve the problems on my Laptop with Windows 8.1. but not on my Smartphone. When i try to Log In over my router it still doesn't work, 'cause there is no possibility of Wlan Settings on my phone. The technican said, on my router is no chance to disable the Ipv6, only in the Windows settings, and that solve the problem. He said, modern router work this way? I don't know if it is so, so i guess many more people must have this problem . I wish you good luck to solve your problem. Have a good time in spain.

Best Regards
Volker

Possibility: the Aerowinx forum is not, or half on IPv6. Anybody who can try this?

I've been too lazy to configure and activate IPv6 on my fairly new Asus RT-AC68U router - I would have to read some of the manual to activate IPv6 (grins). Its firmware is regularly updated.

Everything I do on the internet works fine in spite of lack of access to IPv6, including the Aerowinx forums and features. My iPads and iPod Touches and Mac and Windows 7 PCs all work fine, too. Also, my networked TVs, Roku devices, and other networked devices and apps all work fine and can access anything they host.

I worry that I do not understand the questions and issues that are being discussed here. Just let me know if there is anything specific I can do to help with these issues.

Hi,
I have a modem with a build in router from my provider.
As far as I know the ipv6 feature can not be disabled, only on my pc in windows, and since i can not disable ipv6 on my ipad i can not use it to post.
I would liked to have a seperate router but that is not posisible,
You can not have all in the world, I have to settle for my good looks, nice wife and sharp brain. ;)
Ps ; only 1 of the 3 is correct :P

This forum software is not on IPv6.

The developer of this software once planned a new version that supported IPv6, but this plan has been cancelled some years ago.

A migration to a new forum software would be acceptable only if the existing forum database can be automatically migrated as well.

I'm slowly starting to look out for new software, but that will certainly be a matter of years, not weeks.

Hardy,
but it is. "aerowinx.com" or "www.aerowinx.com" resolve to both an AAAA (IPv6) and A (IPv4) DNS record:

godot@eisbaer> dig aerowinx.com any @8.8.8.8
(...)
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;aerowinx.com. IN ANY

;; ANSWER SECTION:
aerowinx.com. 21572 IN NS ns1.hans.hosteurope.de.
aerowinx.com. 21572 IN NS ns2.hans.hosteurope.de.
(...)
aerowinx.com. 21572 IN A 80.237.133.10
aerowinx.com. 21572 IN AAAA 2a01:488:42:1000:50ed:850a:5a:5ce0


With the hosting provider for my personal website, I am able to control whether the domain name should resolve (additionally) to an IPv6 address. Maybe you have a similar setting in your hosting control panel?

If you can remove this "AAAA" entry, all will be fine ;-)

Regards,
Christian

Edit: And definitely no need to replace the forum software, then!
