BT Voyager 2091 -help
Hi All

As a total novice on wireless I need help. I have purchased a BT voyager
2091 for my wireless enabled laptop. The CD with the router is not
compatable with vista. I have downloaded the drivers from the BT website &
the laptop connects to the router, however when I open IE I get told i'm off
line. When I hover over the icon the message states local connection (no
mention of internet) . The internet light on the modem is also not on. Can
you help please.....no jargon please as I'm new to all this

RE: BT Voyager 2091 -help
You don't need any software to set up the router. Plug the Ethernet cable
into the computer and the router. Open a browser page and type your router
address into the address bar. It will be in the manual and it's something
like 192.168.0.1.

When the page opens look in the wireless section (or similar wording) for
SSID name and WEP or WPA key. It's these two pieces of information that are
needed to connect wirelessly. They will either be present or you will have
to set them up. Now try a bit of surfing to make sure you can access the web.

Unplug the Ethernet cable and connect wirelessly via Start, Connect to or
right-click your wi-fi icon in the system tray (I can't remember the exact
wording as I'm on an XP machine at the moment). Key in the SSID and Key and
you should connect to the router. You may have to change to 'Never dial a
conn...' in Internet Options, Connections Tab.
