Device Access Code does not work [SOLVED, VPN on]

I want to enter the modem configuration options and the Device Access Code printed on the side of the modem doesn't work. 
Is this because my browser is blocking the 22 trackers on that page?

Trackers?  If you're seeing trackers, maybe you should check your PC.

It's not my PC, dude. 
If you're using Brave Browser or UBlock Origin, you'll see nearly every web page uses 20+ trackers, especially if they are running Javascript. YouTube for instance, uses roughly 230 trackers in 10 minutes of viewing.

But the embedded web server of a Gateway?  Not very likely.  Out of curiosity, I did check my Gateway.  I didn't visit every page, but I did a decent survey of it and not a thing got served that didn't come off the gateway's IP.

If you'd like to show us what your tracker reports for your Gateway, I'd be interested.

OK. I tried to recreate the situation and you are right, the embedded server has no trackers. Maybe I was confused, because I had so many tabs open. The AT&T Community Forums was the site that had all the trackers. 
I closed my browser, turned off my VPN and the Device Activation Code screen worked. So, topic of thread SOLVED. 
Advice. If one is doing modem/router configs, don't have anything else open and do so without VPN on. Not sure if that was the variable, but it worked finally. Which will lead me to my next thread. Shutting down all the wifi. Thanks for pressing. I learned, which is good.
