Problem With BT Voyager 2500V

  Alex_Neville 14:07 04 Jun 2006

I have been having this problem for some time now, and it has pretty much rendered my laptop useless seeing as the main reason that I purchased it was in order to access the internet freely around my house.

What happens is, the wireless LED on the router VERY rarely actually comes on. When I check in the router manager, there is no option to turn on the wireless. Even when I use the inbuild troubleshooting, there is not even a mention of wireless.

However, on the rare occasion that the wireless connection does turn on, I am able to connect from my laptop, but the connection drops after a short period of time (from memory, the whole connection drops; on my main pc and the laptop), and then I have to reboot the router. This solves the problem with the USB connection to the main pc (i.e I am able to connect to the internet from there) but then the same problem of the wireless not coming on again.

If anyone knows of a solution to this problem, it would be much appreciated, as at the moment, the £700 that I have spent on my laptop has been pretty much wasted.

of the router you're using?

From what you say it sounds as if the router is establishing the broadband connection, but isn't broadcasting it wirelessly - is that about it? Presumably you can connect to the internet via your laptop if you use a cable connection to the router?

I too have a Voyager 2500V. The wireless part works fine for me. The only problems I've had are if I have other electronic equipment within a few inches of the 2500V. I did have my phone base unit right next to it, and got intermittent broadband connection. When I moved the base unit about two feet away the problem went away.

So try to be sure there is nothing electronic within about a foot of the 2500V. e.g. don't stand it on top of your computer.

I hope this might help you.
