Is your question about Adwords or Adsense?

I noticed the same thing. The ads didn't show on our site (just blank spaces). I dialed in using a different ISP and all was fine from there.
Something is worng, given that my first ISP is massive.

LeaveMeAlone: That doesn't make sense. Why would an ISP block Adsense?
An interesting test would be: From that machine, using the ISP that doesn't see ads, ping pagead2.googlesyndication.com
If you don't get a valid response, your ISP or your ISP's DNS (or whatever you have your DNS set to) is doing something funny (but I doubt that would happen).

I've noticed some of my clients are using firewalls (Sonicwall is one) that block based on content (from a 3rd party maintained list) and that includes Adsense. Since the vast majority of users appear to surf (and shop) at work this can have a big impact on earnings.

"Why would an ISP block Adsense?"
I didn't say that the ISP was blocking it. I said that ads were not appearing when I was dialed in to that ISP. That's entirely different.
Anyhow, they are back today.
My guess is a Google glitch. Maybe they thought the ISP was a proxy. Who knows.
