    As of this moment, the Dish website is down. No we're working on it sorry page, just not accessible. Of course, I could get to pages like the tech portal receiver page which apparently doesn't require dishnetwork.com to be accessible .

    Wonder what they're doing?

    Don't know. I haven't been there in weeks. Prior to that it was months; maybe a year. I just don't have any need to go there.

    Aside from that, it's always been flaky. Lots of things don't work properly if you don't use a certain browser. I've always thought it was a very, very poorly designed site.

    Hmmm. I can get to the customer support page at https://customersupport.dishnetwork.com/customercare/prepWelcome.do but I can't get to http://www.dishnetwork.com/default.aspx or any page that requires access to http://www.dishnetwork.com

    PC Pitstops trace route utility gives me "Unable to reach 205.172.147.51 (dishnetwork.com)." A ping from my command prompt and a tracert from a command prompt both work.

    Oh and the online id/password in the header can't be filled in on those pages I can get to. Yet I could sign into customer care. Weird.

    The curious thing is this morning I still couldn't get in using either Firefox 3.5.7 or IE8. I then went to the Tech Portal and the sign in blanks at the top finally became available. I signed in and it took me to my account. Then I just hit the Dish logo link at the top and it took me to the Dish home page.

    Darrell and Darrell, have been doing live updates, without troubleshooting. Very hit and miss, the last few days.

    It is working now.

    It seems to have been down because of a change:
