About a week ago I started getting the following error when I tried to do google searches or access facebook:

I did some searches and tried some suggested instructions including making sure my date and time is correct, and I downloaded and ran malwarebytes anti-malware (after updating the database of course). No luck.

 

I thought it may be related to my service provider possibly blocking me since I have gone over my allotted gigabytes for the month, but I passed the reset date and it did not go away. 

 

So I figured I might come here for some help. I have multiple computers in my home network and all have the same problem. I installed Opera browser to see if it was just a chrome and firefox thing, and the same thing happens in Opera.

 

Gmail and Twitch.tv work fine. Google drive does not, Youtube does not, and Weather.com does not work. I started using webcrawler.com as an alternative to google searches.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

 

Just thought of something, going to try and update my wifi router firmware, will report back.

Looks like I had the option to click through even though it was unsecured. When I did so, it took me to a page from my internet service provider, Suddenlink, saying that I had gone over my monthly allowance and that I had to fill in my email address to receive notifications in the future for when I am nearing my monthly limit.  :axe:

 

I hope that with the new legislation making internet a utility, they will do away with these data caps.
