BT Broadband router settings

Please help, i currently have a voyager 205 router from BT. I am trying to change this for a netgear DG834GT wireless router. The trouble i am having is with the correct config and user name in particular. When looking at the advanced settings of the voyager i see a username as [email protected], however i am not sure wether this is the correct setting to use on the new router. I can get a connection to the web with the netgear and it tells me i have a connection, yet i cannot connect to any sites. Plz help. Thanks in advance.

Put in your [email protected] or if this is not your e-mail address try that. You can always change it back.

Thanks for the quick response. I have now connection thru my netgear.

For information, BT Broadband does not require a log in as such.
Using any name in the form [email protected] works fine. The problem i discovered was that the router didn't like the fact that a password wasn't used. Again using a dummy password to satisfy the router works. BT Broadband ignores the credentials supplied.

Except when you want to get your BT e-mail?
