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.
1) Download and unpack the tarballs from their site (perhaps rpms work as well)
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]% (assuming it's in your $PATH)
Values to input are: (change User.Name to your account name)

(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:

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
...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
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: remote IP address
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: primary DNS address
Dec 26 13:12:54 visitor11 pppd[5147]: secondary DNS address

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

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

10) For more information/ if things go wrong:

Good luck,
