Thanks for the reply. I tried to use a proxy but I didn't have much luck. I'm a true dummy with software things and could not figure out how to connect with SSL over nonstandard ports or the VPN thing. I do not think they would be filtering my traffic as I am located in the Philippines which is the chat and social media capital of the world, lol. All I know is after they changed my antennas to this PLDT wifi is that I immediately started having this issue, so I suspect that maybe they are filtering it. Could you possibly tell me how to do the SSL over nonstandard ports thing? Remember that I'm not real savvy on this. Thanks.
