this is a forumotion based problem. not my isp or google,
i can have 10 users all showing the same ip so its not my isp, as for restoring the forum this is not realy a option, i spend a lot of money and time traveling around the country for content for my site so i am not prepared to just delete it after all there is no gurantee it will solve the problem!! also if you read some other members posts you will see there is lots of forums with similiar problem being reported, i would like typlo have a look at this urgently. thankyou

ken sorry for no support but this isn't something we would know. This is a community support forum there is no one that gets paid besides Typlo and he wouldn't know either. I would think you are running a proxy or you need to get contact with Tech Support. We can't help people with IP's as its not are job here.

Ok, i have just got the same thing, but it does not make any difference to your activity on your forums, so there honestly is nothing to be worried about.

I can provide pictures if needed =]

This is a complex problem but I understood it right off the bat - You show up as someone else's IP.

You keep having to log in again.

The IP you are listed under is 'blacklisted.'

I would like to help with this problem, sounds like my sort of thing. *Cracks Knuckles* Gimme a day. I'll have something by then.

Edit: If this is true, that was easy.
You are probably using VM. (Pm me if you don't know)
VM have 'transparent IP's at the moment- Many members are reporting problems logging into dynamic websites.
The IP is blacklisted because it has tried to: Proxy Attempt, Proxy Search, Bug Search, hack attempt, spam request etc.

Apparently this IP has also been used to generate usernames and passwords of people on computers. There's a site listing a bunch of them. It's a phishing Proxy IP thing.
So I think this IP has found its way into your site, computer, account.

Use a different computer, tell me if you get these logging off issues.

Look at all the malware warnings popping up in this forum section. I bet you all users are VM.
The solution: Log out of your forum from everywhere you can, perform a quick virus check on your computer, clear all your cookies and change your service provider. (if all else fails)
VM most likely put a small virus in the site to spread the IP - quickly check on a friends comp that doesn't use VM and log into your account from there. If your IP shows as normal (on the friends comp) you are fine. However, if it still shows the VM IP, you will have to take this issue to VM themselves. Report the issue to google too.

I do not have this issue, I am under VM. When you have performed the above steps, send me a pm or post back here.
