CA Lottery Site

For the past 2 months, I have been unable to access www.calottery.com

I think the problem is with a central computer that handles traffic.  Anyone else ever had this issue.  It's really weird.  I can't access on my computer, phone, or tablet.  When I am away from the house, I can't access either.

When I travel to Northern California, it works just fine.  I emailed the lottery who just points fingers at Cox, says I need to delete cookies, reset APP, and a bunch of other BS solutions that don't work.

The last response I got was for them to check their provider like Akamai or Cloud Flare whoever they use to control traffic in Southern California.  No response.

    What error do you get? Have you tried from your phone with the wifi disabled?

      Yes, I turned off WI-FI on the phone and the website works.  Sorry for the delay, I just sort of gave up.  I am not a big lotto player but I buy on occasionally.

        What error do you get when you go to the site? I wonder if your IP address changed and you got a IP of someone who is banned. Also, what IP do you get when you ping the website? Trying to rule out DNS.
