BT Voyager 220V ADSL router

Hi - I'm changing from BT Broadband to O2 and currently have this router which will become redundant next week.

A friend of mine is going from dial up to broadband and BT want to charge her for a router - is there any reason why she can't have mine?

None whatsoever. You will need to change the user settings (and admin password) that's all.

Thanks, Marv - how will she do that, please? I guess she'll get a CD from BT - if she follows the instructions on that, will that do it?

BT should provide a username and password for her ADSL connection, exactly as they did for you. Log into the router setup and find the bit containing your username and password, replace it with hers. Then look for a section called admin or similar and change the admin password to one of her choosing.

"To change the router settings, open your browser and type click here in the address bar. You will need to enter the configuration manager username and password.
The configuration manager default username and password are both ‘admin’, although you can change this to your own choice. If you forget any
changes you make to the configuration manager username or password, you will need to reset the router, returning it to its default settings.

Resetting the BT Voyager 220V (advanced users only). To return the router to its factory setting, you need to press and hold the reset
button on the router’s back panel for ten seconds. The power light will show red to indicate that resetting is in progress. The reset process may take several minutes, after which the power light will turn green. The unit should now be reset and
ready for normal use."
