    So I know this is not exactly the right forum to post this problem. But I hate people who join a forum just to post a question and never come back. So I figured since I've used this forum previously and had lots of help, I should try here again.
    So here is my dilemna, a few months ago, I all of a sudden lost access to weightwatchers.com. I couldnt get there if my life dependent on it ( and sometimes it does!) Anyway I stopped being able to access it from all my computers (5) from PC to Mac no luck. While on my iphone away from the house I could access it fine, from friends house I had no problem. I could not figure out what was wrong. I called my cable internet provider, Comcast and got some troubleshooting. They were able to ping and tracert the website fine, but I was not. They said it was not there problems it was weightwatchers. On weightwatcher's side, all I can get is there basic help desk which keeps tellingme to disable virusscan. (Which is not the problem!) So I'm coming here for help.. If I cant get them to fix whatever is wrong, is there some way I can get around going through my normal hops to get to the website? Can't I take an alternate path??

    Though it might seem I'm not technical, I actually am! :) Just not so much on the networking side. I appreciate any help!
    Below is my tracert

    Without being technical.... Do they have any back doors you can gain access through ? Try entering weight watchers through you account, customer service, advertisements, shipping (What ever) Weight Watchers was good in the Eighty's. I'd prefer they'd give people a bulk diet (Vegetables & Fiber, less meat)

    I've been able to get to some of the "back door" parts of the website..sometimes.. sometimes the help page loads sometimes it doesnt or the about us page. Doesnt make sense that all my computers can't get there. Is there anything else I can check ?
