I found BT's self help guide. Which takes one to BT Voyager Technical Help Centre.
Configuration Manager, no.

The '205 generates web pages that are used for setup and configuration. You should be able to call them up by entering the Voyagers default IP address 192.168.1.1.

Thanks for the ipconfig file.

Now, disconnect the LAN cable from the desktop and plug it in the laptop.
Wait say 10-20 seconds and show us what ipconfig /all says on the laptop.
No need to post the desktop's configuration again.
On the notebook, it should read something very similar to what the desktop showed you:

DHCP Enabled.............: Yes
IP Address...................: 192.168.1.3
Subnet mask...............: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway...........: 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server.................: 192.168.1.2

Should have added "In a web browser".

I still need to catch up with this thread but why are you using the USB port instead of direct Ethernet?
It's far easier for the whole system.

removed the usb from desktop to modem.
connected laptop to modem via straight through cat5 Rj45 cord.
ipconfig reports exactly the same message.

reconnected the desktop to modem usb to send this message.

the desktop used to connect to the modem via the narrow plug version of the ethernet port.
That link went down during a storm.
The BT helpline eventually talked me through the USB link. At the time it seemed to be the only way to get my link live again.
I don't know what was damaged, modem, desktop or software.
I have been on usb link ever since.
None of my other usb links work. no pics, no memory stick.

Thanks Andrew.

Here's a message from a thread at computing.net:

Connecting via Ethernet and/or USB

If you are using the ADSL/Ethernet router with multiple PCs on your
LAN, you must connect the LAN via an Ethernet hub connected to
the device's LAN port. If you are using a single PC with the
ADSL/Ethernet router, you have two connection options:

* You can connect the PC directly to the LAN port using a
cross-over Ethernet cable. See your User's Manual for a
description of cross-over and straight-through Ethernet
cables.

* If the PC is USB-enabled, you can connect it directly to the
device's USB port. Only one computer can be connected in
this manner.

You can also use the USB and Ethernet interfaces simultaneously,
connecting your LAN to the Ethernet port and a standalone PC to
the USB port.

You must assign a unique IP address to each device interface that
you use.

Thread:
http://www.computing.net/networking/...rum/27866.html

What rfbrw said:
type the gateway address '192.168.1.1' in your browser and see if you can connect to the modem's settings.

From there only people familiar with this modem will be able to help. But I'll follow with interest.

that bit allows what BT's voyager describes.
It would be the Laptop=LAN and desktop=standalone.
Pity BT does not mention unique address! Told you details were scarce.
Where do I type that address?

are computing.net saying the Laptop to modem link via the RJ45 LAN ports must use a crossover cable?
