Cox Assigned IP Address is blacklisted

I am having problems accessing a few websites.  I found that the IP subnet that Cox is using to assign addresses is blacklisted at 3 blacklist sites.  I have reported this problem to Cox 2 times and nothing has changed.  It is Cox's IP address and they need to take action to clear this issue.

  • Most likely there's some abuse associated with this IP address.  This isn't really something your Internet provider can fix unfortunately.  Best option would be to try and find a contact for the site(s) in question and explain your situation.  It'll ultimately be up to them whether or not they will release any block that is in place.

      Yes they can fix this.  This is a full subnet that is blacklisted.  Since cox is the subnet owner they need to contact the blacklist owner.   I have done this many times for my business IP addresses that get mistakenly blacklisted
