Hi.  The mining pool I was using has been blocked by my ISP.  I tried buying a USB to Ethernet adapter and bridges the connection with the existing connection and then connected to a VPN.  While webpages seem to be shielded the miner still won’t connect to the pool.  It’s connects fine to an alternate pool however. It’s also not the pool itself as a family member has miners in another location connecting to the same pool fine. Any suggestions would be great. I’m mining on an Antminer S9i.

Switch pools.  I run on Kano.is... great group of people.  We have really been helping each other through these latest firmware updates.

Mined for a living since 2017.  Dabbled for years before that.

I experienced this before but after I change my DNS to OpenDNS it solved my issue. If you can access your ISP just change your DNS to 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
or you can try the google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

If it doesn't work to you switching pool might solve this issue like the suggested above.

I also would suggest another pool then. Kano.is is a good one!

changing the DNS will probably solve most blocking issues whether it is mining or something else. i assume most people will do this on a router scale, meaning that whole LAN will be using that DNS, which is pretty risky if you are accessing any type of online wallet, be it on your mobile or a pc. using a public DNS is associated with great risks, tons of coins have been stolen from people who use a public DNS.

so what you should do is change the dns ONLY on the miner itself from the network tab.
