    A couple of forums that I normally frequent have blocked me. Reason: they say I am using a proxy IP based on the following:

    I did & IP look-up & got the following:

    My ISP (Spectrum) says that I have a regular IP, not a proxy.

    Any comments? Anyone? Please? o_O

    Dynamic IP means it may change - it isn't suspicious in itself. It is common for ISPs to manage IPv4 addresses that way.
    Probably IP ended on some kind of blocklist. Maybe try to restart router or do factory reset to change IP to another one?
