Quick Start Guide

Installing your BT Voyager 2110 Wireless Router

 


Step 1

Familiarise yourself with your BT Installation Kit

Your BT Installation Kit should include the following items:

 


Step 2

Install your ADSL Microfilters

A Microfilter filters out the ADSL signal from your normal phone service, allowing you to use both phone and Internet services on the same line, at the same time. Firstly ensure that any previously used Broadband modem has been uninstalled from your computer and unplugged from your ADSL line.

Your BT Installation Kit includes two types of microfilter:

A Double Socket microfilter for use where you will be installing your Voyager router. This allows you to connect your router, and also a telephone if required, to one phone socket.

A Single Socket microfilter for use at any other phone socket where you have a phone, cordless, answering machine, fax machine, etc. connected.

You should install these microfilters as follows:

Dual Socket - At the socket where you install the Voyager router:

Connect the LINE end of the microfilter to your telephone socket

Plug one end of the grey ADSL Line Cord that came with your router into the DSL/HPN socket on the microfilter and the other end into the ADSL socket on the back of the router.

If you want to connect a phone where the router is located, plug it into the socket marked PHONE on the microfilter

Single Socket - At any other phone sockets on same telephone line:

Unplug the phone cable from the socket.

Connect the LINE end of the microfilter to the socket

Connect the phone to the socket marked PHONE on the filter

Step 3

Install BT Voyager 2110 Base Unit

Plug the Power Supply and the grey ADSL Line Cord into the sockets on the back of the Voyager 2110 Base Unit (sockets are marked Power and DSL respectively).

Plug the Power Supply into the nearest mains socket ensuring the socket is switched on.

Press the power switch on the back of the Voyager 2110 (marked On/Off) to switch it on. The Power light on the front will turn green.

Wait up to one minute until the DSL light on the front stops flashing and is solid green.

Click here if the DSL light does not come on or continues to flash constantly.

 


Step 4

Set up a wireless connection

The BT Voyager 2110 is preset with wireless security using 128-bit WEP. Your wireless network key can be found on the coloured label on the base of your product.

Most modern Apple Mac computers have a built-in Airport card to connect to available wireless networks. If your computer is not equipped with an Airport card you will need to purchase one. If so, in the meantime you can connect to your BT Voayager 2110 router using an Ethernet connection (skip to Step 5).

1) Open Internet Connect

Open Internet Connect in the Applications folder and click AirPort in the toolbar. If you don't see the AirPort icon in the toolbar, you either don't have an AirPort card installed or it hasn't been installed correctly—for instructions on installing an AirPort card, see these articles.

 

2) Make Your Connection

If AirPort is turned off, click Turn AirPort On. Then choose your network from the Network pop-up menu. If no BTVOYAGER2110 appears in the list, check that your BT Voyager 2110 base unit is correctly installed and switched-on (Power light is green). You might also be out of range. Move closer or re-position your BT Voyager 2110 Base Unit to reduce the distance.

If more than one BTVOYAGER2110 appears in the list, your own network can be identified by matching the 2 digits ‘-xx’ with the last 2 digits of the BSSID number printed on the label underneath your BT Voyager 2110 base unit.

 

When you are prompted for a password, enter the wireless network key that can be found on the coloured label on the underside of your BT Voyager 2110 base unit. Tick the 'Remember password in my keychain' box.

 


Step 5 (Optional)

Set up wired connection

In addition to wireless connections, you can also connect computers or games console using up to 4 wired Ethernet connections at the back of the Voyager 2110 base unit:

 


Step 6

Connect to BT Broadband

Start your Internet Browser (Safari) and type the following IP address http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press Enter on your keyboard.

The BT Voyager 2110 Configuration Manager screen opens as below.



To log on enter the Broadband User Name followed by @btbb and then the Password, which you selected on your application.

There is no need to add '.ie' or '.com' as the broadband username is not an e-mail address.

Passwords are cASe SeNSitiVe. Ensure the Caps Lock is NOT on.

Click Connect.

You are now ready to browse the Internet from your computer using BT Broadband!


There is no need to repeat this step on all computers. Simply start your Internet browser and you will be automatically connected.
