There is this one website that won't let me connect from my PCs connected to the same router. I tried turning off the router, wait 15 minutes, restart it to make sure it gets a different ip address from my ISP. I also tried TOR browser and ZenMate chrome extension that ensures my traffic goes through one of their servers but the site still rejects me. I tried it using firefox, chrome and IE in privacy modes. also tried clearning all history (cache, tracking info).
I know the site is up and running because when i connect to it from my smartphone using cellular network i am able to see contents.
How could this site still know it is me?
- I checked my ipaddress at whatismyipaddress.com or similar site after using TOR or ZenMate and the site shows expected ip address: different from mine in different country.
- Since using TOr or ZenMate fail as well i don't think it is ip address based detection.
- after failing to connect to the site on my laptop, i went to my pc that never accessed the site before and it won't connect either.
