Strange server list

Hi i live in the UK, when i used to refresh the server list a bunch of english servers used to show like civilgamers and zarp and superiorservers redirect servers also, with countless other low/medium pop uk/english servers then after thoose the french servers would load and eventually a couple of german then it’d stop.

Now for some reason on my desktop pc’s server list just floods with french and turkish servers and im unable to connect to servers like superior servers and civilgamers and zarp manually.

Things looked into:
garrysmod is allowed through windows firewall
ports 27005-27020 are open on the router for the local ip in use
pinging the servers ip with cmd and tracert (yes they show up and work and report the pings)
using a 2nd pc on the same router and internet connection but this one isnt port forwarded shows as it used to with the english servers
hosts file for anything that shouldn’t be there

These issues are making no sense to me any1 got any ideas?

console paste:

connect 82.196.16.26:27015
Network: IP 192.168.56.1, mode MP, dedicated No, ports 27015 SV / 27005 CL
