I have W7 64 bit, Belkin N+ ADSL2 Router and a Vonage Internet phone. Today the Vonage connection failed and a number of attemts to reset the device failed. I rest the router etc. The Vonage website and the tech support of Belkin on IE8 came up with:OOPs Internet Explorer could not find Vonage.co .uk - same with Belkin Tech support. I have PC Tools Firewall,Avira free anti virus, SAS and Malawarebytes., also Spywareblaster. I will run the scans to check for malware but I wondered if anyon else has problems.Could a IE user see if they can get Vonage.com?

Using IE9 and was able to find vonage.com OK. Have you tried http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ to see if it is just you?

Should add that I can see both vonage.co.uk and Vonage.com

Tried widows update - Message "Cannot Update, error code 802442C" Went to MS website - tried turning off anti virus and firewall, still could not update. Curiouser and curiouser. Running SAS and Avira scans then Malawarebytes to see if they find anything.

I do not know why but everything now seems to be working. Maybe some gremlin that came and went, who knows? Update check now works, as does Vonage. Thanks for useful link, compumac.I only wish I knew how it was solved!
