Hi All..Having recently obtained a refurb BT Voyager 210 (unlocked and without it's cd)... Having followed setup info via web sites I find that (a) I cannot seem to get it to connect via the ethernet cable.. and (b) after downloading and installing drivers, it WILL work via the, USB cable when connecting to IE via ""...the only prob is that although it allows browsing websites, I can't connect to Outlook Express for my mail.... The rear Ethernet port is lit when the cable is attached to either of the two options on the rear of the I assume that it's 'live' ....if you know what I mean.
Any suggestions for a Silver Surfer????????????

Have tried as suggested...without success...following info. I can connect to internet but still cannot find a way to connect to Outlook Express...I use Mailwasher as an intermediary for diagnosing 'rubbish' emails... this works but will not allow processing acceptable mail to O.E.
I've reverted to my "Zoom" USB modem

Discovered my problem...finally reaching my grey-haired follicles!!!
Cure lay in OE Accounts as follows->

Open O.E....Tools...Accounts...Internet Acounts...Highlight each individual Email acct. concerned...Properties...Connection..."Always connect to this Acct." using-: 'Local Area Network' ...Apply... OK... Close

All now appears OK with me...All Systems Go
