Please post here if you are having any issues with your IP address accessing our HWF website at any time.

If, by chance, you are a Telus customer having a problem with a very slow connection speed or no connection to HWF website you are not alone.
For 3 days I was getting an almost non-existent connection or very, very slow connection to our HWF website which resulted in a lot of frustration.
After chatting and working with a Telus agent for over an hour this morning I was FINALLY issued a new IP address and that seemed to do the trick.

Please let us know if you've had the same issue and if you've found other solutions to the problem. Thanks.

JKR, thank you for opening this thread. I have had continued slow speed for at least a month now. As well, notifications of preferred site postings have not been coming through. When I reset my preferences I got some sporadic ones, but since resetting my password and email addie no notifications are coming through. A friend with Telus hookup had slow speed but it is OK now. However, right after I reset my password and email addie she had a pm to me returned with this reason: Reason: Illegal host/domain name found
Remote system: dns;hfxmta.dccnet.com (Limit exceeded max_bad_to for ip exceeded 51>50
I can get in and negotiate very slowly, can post replies. We email through dccnet.

Hi Judy and Sandra,
I too have had the problem with slow speed for about a month now. Just on HWF It is frustrating to say the least as I read alot of different threads.
Judy I wish that I had found other solutions to the problem. What I don't get is why all of a sudden out of the blue as I've been accessing the forum since 2006 same ISP, (Telus)
I should add here that over the last month I've had a couple days here and there where it's working just fine.(normal)
Is it still doing the trick Judy?
Guess I'll be on the phone to Telus asking for a new IP address if so. Chin

I am thrilled to say I was notified of your message Dawn, as well as one other. Funny how sporadic this is.
