Default Voyager 220v blues - no connect, Default Gateway blank

THIS IS MY ORIGINAL POST. THERE HAS BEEN A SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT SINCE. SEE MY NEXT POST IN THIS THREAD.

I'm new to modem/routers and have just acquired a 2nd hand BT Voyager 220v. Been messing with it all day and am completely stumped.

XP home with built in NIC.

Did a reset on the 220v and connected it by ethernet cable.

Attempting to connect with the router by http://192.168.1.1 gets nothing.

ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : bel
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown

=================

Any idea what to try next?

How would I know if the router was "bricked"?

OK. I just tried booting with an old Bart's PE and this time all the hardware appears to be working.

Can now connect with the router via http://192.168.1.1

ipconfig /all (from the Bart's PE)

At least now I know the problem is XP software/setup related. So I have to investigate that side of things.

Hmm. Isn't it wonderful when advice is simple and straightforward.

"For Ethernet connections - Just connect the Ethernet cable from your PC to the modem."

Did that; didn't work. What next?

After 36 hours I found that my XP Home wasn't loading a driver: netbt.sys. There may be another way, but to force it to load I edited the NetBT registry entry, modelled on the entry for NetBIOS and changed a few settings.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\NetBT]
"Type"=dword:00000002
"Start"=dword:00000001
"Tag"=dword:00000001

After this I set DHCP Client service to auto and rebooted.

This worked on my system and I can now access the BT Voyager Router through a browser, as is amply described elsewhere.
