Re: Site down just for me, help. Stumped

Thank-You for checking, I'm very puzzled 3 computers and router all die at same hop. 4 different android devices work. its going on 4 days now.

I don't do HOST file blocking these days but just double checked it was stock and it is (not that it should matter but I'm grasping at straws now lol). Leading up to this I noticed sporadic downtime 3 - 6 hours here and there. Usually didn't wrestle with it cause it would return. The few times I did check, test sites would say it was down just for me. I always figured it was a Shaw or routing quirk but since it never lasted long didn't worry about it.

Security software blocking the IP for another reason? (same IP used for mutiple sites, one might be a bad site therefore blocked)

Thought as much disabled all privacy browser plugins and disabled MS Security Essentials realtime protection, Couldnt find a way to set website exceptions. No software firewall, just hardware one in router. Still couldn't connect in browsers or in torrent clients.

Update: Apparently the IP my traceroutes fail at is the Hosting server of the site. Site staff guessed its my ISP blocking it perhaps.... not likely considering Android devices connect no problem, and I assume you are on Shaw also...

Yes, I am on Shaw, and my traceroute completes correctly, as I said, it should be next on the traceroute you posted, and then exit correctly (the next hop on your traceroute is the end).

I thought the site could be blocking your IP, but your other devices work.

Try safe-mode with networking on your windows computers.
