Please see the service status announcement. There are transit routing issues in the US outside of plusnets control.

Or better still subscribe to service reports by email - see my usertools link below.

possibly, different ISPs use different routes to various destinations.

hi guys,

I was just about to post with the same problem. I also can't connect to sites like www.overclockers.co.uk / www.msn.com , and even messenger wont work.

In my opinion this is totally unacceptable and I would like to know how to sort this out.

I have a friend who uses force 9 (said this was the same as plus.net) and he has no problems whatsoever. Also plus.net was strongly reccomended on the www.overclockers.co.uk site and so i find it hard to believe that users can simply not access the page!

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks

No problems accessing both those sites. Have you rebooted your PC (and router if you have one) recently?

After rebooting can you post tracert or better still WinMTR reports to both those sites please.

Can't access Google using Router

I have been using Plus.net for 6 months connecting to all sites via a Binatone modem with no problems at all. Having just switched to a 3com firewall router in order to go wireless I find that egg.com, virgin.com and even google are unaccesible. Have I missed something in the settings?
