Model: Deco X60
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: X60(1.0) 1.2.6 Build 20201013 Rel. 57035

I am unable to access github.com at all from behind the Deco x60.  But if I disconnect my phone or computer from the Deco's WiFi and connect them directly to the WiFi of my Xfinity XFi modem router, then I can access github.com.  The Deco is behind the XFi modem router.  Both the Deco and the XFi modem operate as routers, each broadcasting its own WiFi networks.  I rebooted all 3 Decos without avail. 

 

DNS is not the problem because the github.com name resolves to the correct IP address when I am behind the Decos.  Ping request to github.com times out however. 

 

If I use VPN on my computer, then I can access github.com from behind the Deco.

 

On the Deco, parental control and antivirus features are all off.

 

I have this problem only with github.com at this point.

 

Please help.  Thanks.

Since the VPN is not using the Deco DNS, I would then change whatever DNS is set in the Deco WAN port to something like 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Another thing to possibly try is to see the Deco as an access point since it is connecting to a router already.

@Tony Thanks.  I set the Deco x60 to Access Point Mode (turning off its routing features) and relies on the xFi router for routing instead.  That worked.
