Netgear DG834GT connection to BT problem

  Richard 11:54 03 Jun 2005

Just moved from ISDN to BT broadband. Got the Voyager 205 router from BT and this works fine but want to move to Netgear router on the BT broadband and having problems.
I am told by BT that I just put in my name with a "." in the middle and I do not need a password to setup the netgear. Tried this no luck. Tried bt email address and with passwords BT, "btinternet password" and no password but still cannot connect the neatgear router to BT broadband.
Have moved to the latest firmware 1.01.28 and while this makes the router quicker still no luck connecting.
In the netgear setup I can see the modem is connected at the correct speed for my broadband so I am assuming it is my login that is causing problems

Have tried the "experts" at BT and Neatgear and they did not solve the problem so thought I would try the experts here!

I have got a similar adsl moden/router and am with BT Internet. Thinking back it was just a case of putting your passwork and user name into the modem settings (via Internet Explorer). The user name isn't [email protected] but the longer one with something like this [email protected]

Finally cracked it. The login has to include [email protected] and any password is controlled by the router if it is needed at all.

Now up and running.
