Comcast Blocks InsanelyMac?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, i've noticed from time to time that when I'm at home (comcast business class internet) Every now and then, I lose access completely to Insanely Mac. I know it isn't just the computer I'm using, cause nothing else on the network can do it either. I don't htink it's the router, cause after a reset of the router, it's still the same result. Only thing that seems to fix it is completely resetting the network, starting with the modem then the router. Anyone else experience anything like this?

When you say lose access what does it show on your screen? Reason why I ask is because there are periods where the forum's database is being updated the forum maybe down for some time. Again I could be wrong because Comcast can be pulling strings from their end although I honestly don't see why they would its not like we're dealing with illegal activity here.

I actually figured it out. For anyone else who wants to know, I had to call up comcast, and apparently in certain markets, they're experimenting with beta options on business-class cable modems where they have some sort of "protective list" in the firewall settings section that they allow and disallow. InsanelyMac wasn't on said list, so they blocked access to it. It's a simple check mark in the modems settings. Sounds like they're getting ready to enforce the next SOPA act, if it comes up.

 

Probably something along the lines of CISPA or something. But for now, the problem is resolved.

If only they knew what they're crippling the Internet with their proposals to stop Internet privacy. Curving it would have been a better idea, stopping is on a whole new level.

      I've got High Sierra 10.13.6 running pretty well on a i5-6400, h370n gigabyte itx mobo, w/ sapphire 580 radeon GPU.
       
      This is my second clean install trying to see if I can get my audio ports on my box working. First time around I had sleep/wake perfect but now it's mostly restarting on sleep and not waking up if it doesn't restart. I'm also getting 2-3 second freezes now every few minutes, which I wasn't before. Not sure what happened there. And I still don't have access to my audio jacks on the front or rear of my box. I can pipe it through HDMI or DisplayPort, and I also have a USB audio jack dongle, but would definitely like to use the native ports.  I've tried all id-layouts for my codec.
       
      I also replaced the wifi card on the mobo with a BCM94352Z DW1560 but I'm not getting Wifi or BT through it. Possible I didn't seat it correctly when replacing it, but I'm trying everything else before I tear the mobo apart again.
       
      Any ideas on how to get this operating as smoothly as possible would be much appreciated

      Hi guys/gals, I've been battling this for two days now and going no where. So I have an MSI GE73VR laptop, the processor is 7700HQ and it has an Intel HD 630 + 1070 GTX (which isn't being used obviously).
       
      I already installed High Sierra, setup was pretty straight forward, I managed to make everything work BUT the graphics. To get it to boot I have to inject intel and set the fake ID to 0x12345678, which lets me boot but there is no acceleration going on and the vram is being listed as 7mb.
      I tried to following fixes:
      -Installing the drivers from mb including the intelFixUp
      -Trying to boot with no options in Clover (inject Intel off, disablegfxfirmware flag with and without) -PK
      -Installing lilu kext and fixup - main bootloop -Trying to inject Intel but changing the fake ID to several others that are mentioned around the internet - PK
        picture of the panic https://ibb.co/bU8irK
       
      specs:
      7700HQ
      Intel 630HD
      16GB RAM
      M.2 SSD
       
      -before the panic it says it's having issues with the CPU
      -after the panic you can see that the latest loaded kext is IAIKABYGraphics.kext
      -The panic doesn't list a backtrace back to the a kext
      -no panic if the intel gpu is given a fake-id for 0x012345678
       
      Any help will be appreciated

      Hi.
      I have a Lenovo Z510-b Laptop which I wanted to Hackintosh.this is my first one so I'm a newbie and don't kjow much.
      I did the process using an easy guide on Hackintosh zone which all I needed to do was to restore a pre maid installer on a usb disk and then boot ETC.
      After installation, I have faced several issues which I have managed to fix some of them gradually, but there are some I couldn't make it work:
      GRAPHICS:
      first of all lets talk about my main issue. The macOS only recognizes 4MB of my igpu and I can't make any difference. ( ill say what I have done for it so far)
      and for my Nvidia graphic I think it won't go so well ( after screwing my laptop up for 3 times) because I only have discrete or igpu option in my bios. ( discrete AFA I heard won't work)
      so im mainly hoping for my igpu.
      Things I have done for igpu:
      Have installed:
      FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext
      FakePCIID.kext
      intelGraphicsFixup.kext.kext using M u L Ti Be a St
      Have done clover settings:
      in devices tab,IntelGfx: 0x4128086
      in Graphics tab, ig-platform-id: 0x0a260006 ( inject EDID and inject Intel checked)
      have checked fix intelgfx in api tab under fixes section
      * I even set the VRAM box in graphics tab to like 64 or 256 to see if it changes anything although I don't really know what is that for lol*
      PS: my bios doesn't have any option to set Vram like some guides suggest.
       
      AUDIO:
      this should be a minor issue. I do have the audio working using "M u L Ti Be_a St "and re booting after installing "100/200/300 series Audio Support" under "Realtek ALCxxx" section under audio tab under drivers section. but when I restart again, it just goes off! 
      the installation suggests "Adds Rename HDAS to HDEF patch to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist." but I had( and still have) this patch in my acpi section! so I don't know what is the deal there; but I think its minor.
       
       
       
      Sorry for long text. I really hope you could help me out. I will now send you the information you need about my laptop specs and will attach my problem reporting files which I made using the script rehab man has suggested. NOTE : I get some warnings and errors during boot (verbous) although it boots perfectly, but I don't know if those are included in my problem reporting file or not, or whether it is important at all or not.but I haven't seen any errors there relating to graphics. ( I might be wrong tho).
       
       
      My laptop:
      Lenovo Z510 
      Inel Core i7 4702MQ
      Intel HD 4600
      Nvidia Geforce GT740M
      Realtek Audio ( I thing its 230)
      Realtek Ethernet
      Intel Wi-fi ( obviously couldn't make it work)
       
      Thanks in advance!
