Why would my Xfinity gateway fail to allow just airbnb?
My computers and mobile devices' apps and browsers can't load airbnb.com IF they're on my own Xfinity wifi. I get "network error" or the infamous "429 Too Many Requests" message. This is true of the airbnb app as well as webpages.
But I CAN get airbnb.com fine if: > I'm using iphone's ATT data and have wifi disabled > I'm using my laptop / imac on my iphone's hotspot > I'm using someone ELSE's Xfinity wifi / gateway.
I can access all other webpages through my gateway, it's just airbnb that's an issue.
I tried clearing the browser caches; no effect.
This may have started a couple days ago when my Xfinity service was mysteriously cancelled. Today they reinstated it and re-activated the router. So it seems to be Xfinity, right? But why would only one website (so far) be affected?
