It is strongly recommended by All router suppliers that you use a physically connected cable
to the Router (via an RJ45 cable) for router setup.

I take it that you disconnect the USB modem

And installed the bt voyager 2091 wireless ADSL router, connected the phone line cable to the new router

And an Ethernet cable from port 1 to the Lan port on the PC

Check the following before trying to set up the router

Checking the network adapter

1. Click “Start”, “Settings” Network Connection

2. Double-click on the “Network Connection

3. Right-click on the “Local Area Connection” associated with your
network adapter

Select “Properties” from the drop-down menu.

4. In the “Local Area Connection Properties” window

Click “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” all boxes should be ticked

Click the “Properties” button

5. Select “Obtain an IP address automatically

6 Obtain DNS server address automatically”

7 Click “OK”.

Your network adapter is now configured for use with the Router.

Checking your browser

If you were using dialup before check your browser setting.

Internet Explorer 4.0 or Higher

1. Start your web browser. Select “Tools” then “Internet Options”.

2. In the “Internet Options” screen, there are three selections:

“Never dial a connection”

“Dial whenever a network connection is not present”

“Always dial my default connection”.

If you can make a selection, select “Never dial a connection”

If you cannot make a selection, go to the next step.

3. Under the “Internet Options” screen,

Click on “Connections” select “LAN Settings”

Make sure there are no check marks next to any of the displayed options:

“Automatically detect settings”

“Use automatic configuration script”

“Use a proxy server”.

4. Click OK”. Then click “OK” again in the “Internet Options” page

YAMA, you state..' I purchased a bt voyager 2091 wirless adsl router from off ebay' .. If this router was originally supplied as part of a BT Broadband setup, I think I'm right in saying, you won't be able to use it with an AOL account, without a firmware upgrade/alteration.
I believe you can get firmware revisions which have been altered to make a BT router work with another supplier.

**Someone please correct me if I'm giving wrong advice here.**

Advice is good. Not sure if that is YAMA's problem but this may be of interest if it is locked click here?
