I got to the site using FIOS with no problem. All I had to do was reset my router and restart my browser.

What are the first two octets of your IP address? I am guessing not 173.x. I really think it is a bogon filter somewhere that has not been updated to allow the 173.x.x.x addresses Verizon is now using to get through (but of course I may be totally wrong).

Anyway, I cannot get to the site from my FiOS address but I can from a cable connection and from AT&T DSL, both of which are not 173.x.x.x addresses.

True. Could be one of those Canadian IPs. I was lucky and was issued 96.255.4.X and used to get IPs in a lower class A subnet. But when the 173s started being issued trouble came up. Strange that whenever I do a trace from the cmd prompt it times out at the gateway. Perhaps I will do a lookup of the domain and see who the registar is.

You were probably issued a new IP.

FIOS DHCP (173.x.x.x).

The IPs seemed to be mapped to France in several Geographic IP databases.

Yep. He is most probably on a DHCP connection and can get a new one fairly easily. Since I have had FiOS internet for 4 years now I am still on the original PPPoE connection. My IP address changes very infrequently. I think I have had maybe 4 or 5 different addresses in the 4 years, at least once a 64.x.x.x I think, the last three have been 71.164.x.x and two with 173.74.x.x (not that I really care, other than some websites thought I was in Kansas City or St. Louis at one point due to the address I got).

Anyway, I hope the OP was able to get the connection he wanted.
