Installing the Voyager 205 - Ethernet connection - Windows

Before installing your Voyager 205 Router, please see the document Getting Started with the Voyager 205 Router

To connect your computer to the Ethernet socket of the Voyager 205 Router:

  • Attach one end (any end) of the grey Ethernet cable to the Ethernet socket at the back of your Router.
  • Connect the other end of the cable to the Ethernet/Network Interface Card (NIC) socket of your computer.

If the computer cannot find the router, leave for a few minutes and try again. Should the dial-up connection appear click on Tools, Internet Options and select the Connections tab, choose Never dial a connection and apply your settings. If this does not solve the problem, restart the computer with the router plugged in and try again.

1. Your Voyager 205 Router is pre-configured for UK Consumer Broadband services using NAT and Dynamic IP address allocation (PPPoA and VC MUX). The only settings you need to configure on your Voyager 205 is your Broadband Username and Password provided by us.
