usenet being blocked

can you post a tracert?

PN only block usenet if you have exceeded your peak time allowance or are on a poduct that does not allow it (Homesurf) or if you have enabled the surf option on your account.

PlusNet block P2P, Usenet and external FTP at peak times if you exceed 15GB of usage at peak times.
