Voyager 105 USB modem - setup guide

Microfilters already plugged in? Go to Connect your modem.

Plug a microfilter into each telephone socket you use in your property. If you had to unplug something you can plug it back into the Phone socket of the microfilter.

Phone sockets can be used by phones, alarm systems, fax machines and digital TV boxes, so make sure you don't miss anything out. Microfilters are essential for keeping your phone and Internet services from interfering with each other. Without microfilters you'll see poor speeds and connection drops.

  • You can use a microfilter before or after an extension lead, but not both
  • You can connect two devices to one microfilter if you use a phone adapter
  • If you need more microfilters, you can get them from most electrical stores and supermarkets
  • Don't plug a microfilter into the socket of another microfilter

If the DSL light is flashing

Check your microfilters - there should be a microfilter on each telephone extension on which a telephone device is used. Make sure that you don't use two microfilters on the same extension.

If you are using a telephone extension cable, try connecting your modem to the main telephone socket.

Mac OSX Tiger and Broadband Max

You may see some of the following problems if you're using Mac OSX Tiger with Broadband Max:

  1. Can connect for up to one minute but then lose the ability to surf the Internet. The Voyager 105 remains in sync and the PPP connection is still running.
  2. Can connect for about 3 minutes then a dialogue box appears stating that there is no longer a response from the remote server, and the PPP connection is terminated. The session is then terminated.
  3. When trying to reconnect you get a message stating there is no response from the far end. In order to get a PPP session again, you either have to remove then re-connect the USB cable, or restart the Mac.

At no point does the Voyager 105 lose synchronisation with the DSL line. These problems only occur with Broadband Max You can resolve all these problems by downloading and installing the following drivers: Download Drivers Now
