Installing the Voyager 2091 - USB connection

You can connect your computer to your Voyager 2091 using either an Ethernet, USB or the Wireless connection.

If you are only connecting one computer to your Voyager 2091 and the computer meets the minimum specification, we recommend that you use the Ethernet connection.

Please note that Ethernet, USB and the Wireless connection may be used simultaneously to share your Internet connection, and whichever connection method you choose now, you can always change the connection method at any time in the future.

A USB connection requires drivers to be installed on your computer. These drivers are included on the installation CD.
