BT Broadband/ BT Voyager 100 USB ADSL Modem

Hello all,

I've just got the BT Voyager 100 USB Modem to work under Linux.
Here's a

Micro-HOWTO: BT Voyager 100 USB Modem
==============================

System: Fedora Core 1 (i386), no other usb devices.
USB supported as kernel modules from stock install.

The modem does work with the eciadsl modem using the flashtux's driver.
So:
1) Download and unpack the tarballs from their site (perhaps rpms work as well)
http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/index.php
o eciadsl-usermode-0.8.tar.gz
o eciadsl-synch_bin.tar.gz
2) cd to the new directory & build the driver
%cd eciadsl-usermode-0.8
%./configure ; make
%su -l
[root]%make install
3) Install the contents of eciadsl-synch_bin.tar.gz, so that all the synchronization files are somewhere useful, e.g. /etc/eciadsl
4) check that dabsub is not installed:
[root]%lsmod | grep dabsub
5) After waiting ~15 seconds with your modem unplugged, plug it into your usb port.
Check it's there:
%cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep Vendor
P: Vendor=0000 ProdID=0000 Rev= 0.00
P: Vendor=0000 ProdID=0000 Rev= 0.00
P: Vendor=1690 ProdID=0203 Rev= 1.00
...the 1690 one is your BT Voyager 100 modem.
start configuration of the modem:
[root]% eciconf.sh (assuming it's in your $PATH)
Values to input are:

User.Name@btbroadband.com (change User.Name to your account name)

VPI 0
VCI 8
(You may recognize this from BT under WindowsXX, when the dialogue says "Dialling ,38" 0,38 are setting for the UK, I believe).

Select your Modem:
BT Voyager
VID1: 1690 PID1: 0203
VID2: 0915 PID2: 0204
(Seems to change the USB Vendor and Product IDs during the flashing from 1 to 2)

Change synchronization .bin file:
synch02.bin

Select PPP mode: VCM_RFC2364 (Default)
Select use DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol , if you don't know; the DHCP 'client' sends out a request in the form of the MAC address [on the underside of the modem], and the DHCP server replies by automagically sending you your IP address and DNS. Therefore, dhclient should be used, I think, but don't use DHCP server software on your box )

Remove dabusb, if found in (4)

Press "Create config"

6) Run startmodem as root, making sure lsmod and ifconfig are in your $PATH
%su -l
[root]%startmodem
...this replies by telling you how things went....

7) Check /var/log/messages to see your IP address:
[root]%cat /var/log/messages | grep pppd
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: local IP address 217.43.135.212
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: remote IP address 217.32.9.69
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: primary DNS address 194.72.9.34
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: secondary DNS address 194.74.65.68

8)Update your DNS entries in /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 194.72.9.34
nameserver 194.74.65.68
..or whatever values they should be.

9) Internet should be working- it worked for me.

10) For more information/ if things go wrong:
http://eciadsl.flashtux.org/faq.php

Good luck,

Mark
