I have a weird problem going on: Between 6 and 8 pm I am unable to make any ssl connections through my router - and it effects various devices using a range of operating systems and but wifi and Ethernet connections.
I have had the line and checked and the ISP can find no errors on the line or router. Stranger still, Tor seems to work fine, which is making me think that something very strange is going on and either my Tor is fake and not using SSL at all, or the onion routing is helping Tor evade what ever is interfering with SSL connections.
I did have some problems with someone hacking some things through an old email account with a poor password a while before this started - but I don't think they managed to get into anything on my personal network, just access an FB account, and I have hardened my security a lot since then. However, I do make some politically sensitive posts and could be the subject of unwanted attention by. I don't mind if they can see my stuff, but not being able to us SSL connections is a real pain :)
If anyone has an suggestions about why I might have problems with SSL for a regular two hour block each day, or why Tor and Onion routing should seem to to avoid the problem, it would be much appreciated.
