@cnyifei -- not willing to swap a modem with me

If you "upgrade" your Shaw Account to the newest "Shaw Gig WiFi" offering, you will get a new "XB7" cable-modem. It will be assigned a different IP-address than your current cable-modem.

If you telephone Shaw (1-888-472-2222) and  [falsely] claim that your current cable-modem is "dead" (no lights when it is powered-on), Shaw will ship you a replacement modem, and you will ship the current one back to Shaw. You'll get a new IP-address with the replacement modem.

@cnyifei  -- some of those servers are in China, behind the "Great Firewall of China", but some are hosted in the USA.

Correct. When your iPhone is connected to your WiFi, or when your other devices are connected via Ethernet, all the traffic goes through the IP-address of your cable-modem, and that IP-address is "blocked" by China.

> iPhone can not play those online games require connection to chinese servers, have to switch to data mode 

Correct. When your iPhone is connected via "data", it has a different IP-address, as supplied by your cell-phone provider, and that IP-address is NOT "blocked".

Somehow, the authorities that manage that "Great Firewall of China" have chosen to block the IP-address that is assigned to your cable-modem. I would not ask them -- "stirring the pot" is not recommended.

So, "bridge" the cable-modem, connecting it to your third-party router, to get a different IP-address.

This is a difficult issue to explain with SHAW, and it is hard for them to understand why your IP address is blocked. I tell you the easiest way with my personal experience: ask SHAW customer service to send a technician to your home, let him help you to replace a router, and the trouble will be solved immediately.

@YanBin --  This is a difficult issue to explain with SHAW, and it is hard for them to understand why your IP address is blocked.

I disagree. The Shaw Agents that I have contacted are better at their jobs than what you give them credit for.

> I tell you the easiest way with my personal experience: ask SHAW customer service to send a technician to your home, let him help you to replace a router, and the trouble will be solved immediately.

Look back to an post to this thread on Tuesday, from @cnyifei --

after three calls with shaw technical support, hours of waiting, they said they can not do anything as connection lost after leaving Shaw Internet. They [are not] willing to swap a modem with me.

Currently, some Agent at Shaw seems unwilling to now do what they previously did for you.  Sigh.

So, the easy solution is to "bridge" the modem, connect it to a third-party router. That router will get a different IP-address from Shaw. Done.

Also, most of those third-party routers allow you to change the MAC-address of the router, to get a different IP-address, every time that your IP-address gets "blocked".
