I wonder if someone could try something.....

Do a traceroute to to where your Vonage is routing through (for example, mine goes through The first Vonage hop is ( What I would like to see is if can you ping the first Vonage hop during an outage, but not the end point like you can when it works. If you cannot, then the issue is on Vonages network, and it is quite possible that there is a peering point that handles most of the people in Michigan, while other peering points handle others (each Level I and II providers have multiple peer points). Most of the traffic coming through a peering point will follow the same route.

From what I have read over the last 25+ pages looks to me to be mostly a Vonage issue as almost every traceroute gets to their network. By pinging the two locations at the same time on the route you would normally take, you can get an indiciation where the issue is happening.

Just my 2 cents, and no I do not have any issues either for or against Vonage/Comcast (though I do admit to liking Vonage quite a bit).

Here is my traceroute:

As you can see, there are two points where my ping times jump. The first jump in at hop 7 and is on Shaws network. I can call and complain about this as it is on their network. The second jump is on hop 11, and it is not on Shaws so there is nothing I can do about it other then call and ISP that I am not a customer of and will not be listened too.
