Can I use the BT Voyager 220v as an ADSL modem for my own router?

Yes but we’d only suggest this if you’re reasonably comfortable setting up your own network. We’ve copied the instructions on how to do this below.

For this to work you must configure your own router to allocate IP addresses (e.g. as a DHCP server) you can then use the BT Voyager 220v as an ADSL modem.

To use the BT Voyager 220v as an ADSL modem:

  1. Connect a computer to the BT Voyager 220v router.
  2. Open a browser.
  3. In the address bar, enter and press the ENTER key.
  4. In the menu displayed on the left, select Advanced and in the centre of the resultant page, select Advanced again. The Advanced menu expands to display some additional options.
  5. In the Advanced menu, select Internet. If a user name and password dialog is displayed, do the following:

    1. In the User name field, enter admin.
    2. In the Password field, enter admin.
    3. Click on the OK button.

The Internet page is displayed.

  1. Click on the red pen icon displayed under Edit to start the Edit wizard and display the Configure ATM PVC dialog.
  2. Click on the Next button to display the Configure Connection Type dialog.
  3. Click on the Next button to display the Configure WAN IP Settings dialog.
  4. Tick the PPP IP Extensions box.
  5. Click on the Apply button.
  6. Click on the Finish button. The router is rebooted. Once the reboot is complete, the BT Voyager 220v router is set to pass information through to your router. At this point you can disconnect your computer from the BT Voyager 220v.
  7. Connect the Ethernet WAN port of your router into the Ethernet LAN port of the BT Voyager 220V router via an Ethernet cable.
  8. Set your router’s WAN to obtain an IP address automatically.

When you set IP extension mode, the VoIP and LAN options for the router are disabled.
