As a side hustle, I run a website which generates ad income. Recently, I stopped being able to access the publisher dashboard on my Mac. (A 2017 iMac running Big Sur 11.6). It just times out when I try to access any of Adthrive’s web properties. This has been an issue for about a week.
Note that it never worked on Safari on the Mac.
Note that “publisher.adthrive.com” is whitelisted on my router and it works on my other devices just fine.
I have tried
- Four difference browsers (Safari, Brave, Chrome, even Opera) with all adblocking functionality turned off
- Incognito mode or equivalent (the suggestion of Adthrive’s help desk)
- Changing DNS (was using 126.96.36.199) back to the ISP default both on the computer and the router)
I have not tried a different wifi network because, well, it’s a desktop.
I feel like there is some sort of hidden system setting that is causing this.
The photo is from Opera when it tries to load the site-- which seemed to be the most informative. The others seemed to never respond.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated
