Right, got the Xbox side of things working last night......... ;)

Here's the solution:

http://btbroadband.c...hZ2U9MQ**&p_li=

If the above does not work, goto http://www.btyahoo.com/helpbb , Select Support, then under more help select "Broadband from BT" Online Support.

Enter the keyword of xbox and search ALL FAQS.  You should now get the following result : "How do I configure my BT Voyager 205 router to work with an Xbox Live console?"

Job done......Sorted.

Hope this helps  :tazz:

HOORAY! ;). (If you have previously made a dmz as the easy to follow bt online guide says and have NT 2 or 3, then u must delete that one before redoing it ,with the (1) in place of (50) in the rule id box, YOU WILL NOW BE FREE TO JOIN ANYONE ON XBOX LIVE & HAVE ANYONE JOIN YOU!! Spread the word HALLELUJAH! If this just helps 1 person then it,ll be worth it! ......................

That's very nice for you mate....

But this thread is not about your 'Xbox', it's about the 205 dropping it's connection/crashing - not getting it to work with an Xbox... it really has no significance here...

To networkman,
hey dude, i have had the same problem when trying to use symantec pcanywhere. What this problem is based around, is because you have the availability of being able to connect more then one machine at a time, the router must be told where internet traffic needs to go (even if there is only one machine connected to the router at a time!)

Routers are just that, the route where traffic needs to go, and to what machine to send the spacific data to. So, in order to run any kind of server or run any kind of internet based programe that will reqire inbound traffic to be authorised by a host machine, you must first set up the ports on your router. The defult address on your router is 192.168.1.1 or just type in voyager.home in your internet browsers address window. Then you must click the advanced tab and enter the defult username and password as admin (thats admin for usrname and admin for pasword). You can also change these at a later date to make your router more secure. I don;t know aough about these routers, but i am learning more stuff all the time. What i advise you to do is to call the voyager helpline, which bt broadband or btyahoo will be able to put you through to or give you the number for. Either way, you must get some sort of professional help with this as i am only familiar with the pcanywhere settings that i got from the symantec website.

I hope that goes to answer some of your questions at least!!

HI, I just got an NIC to use the ethernet cable for my 205 router because whenever i would use bittorrent my connection timed out and the usb light went out and required a system reboot, its now gone for ages no bother so anyone else with the same problem try the ethernet.

The ethernet in general though has increased the stability so its agood idea and the router seem a bit cooler although its still hot enough to fry your breakfast on in the mornin its a bloody fire risk thats what it is.

But now my problem, i cant seem to either fordward the ports on the router or dmz it or set up a working static ip adress to allow port fordwarding. Has anyone succesfully mangaged to fordward there ports on the router. If anyone has an explanation would be very much appreciated, preferably with screenies i get confused easily. Allthough im good with computers the whole networking thing is a bit of an iffy bit for me i really cant get ip ranges my brain melts and dribbles out my ears.

So if any one can help, please do. But definately use the ethernet connection when you can it is much less flakey with it.

:tazz: TOP POST !!!!! ;)

My Mates were just having the same problem a couple of days ago and we found the MT NT IC to be other than 1 1 1.

After reading your post.......ALL SORTED !!!! I'm a very happy man now...

But this post is for BT Problems, not XBOX........even though the root of the problems ALWAYS points to the BT Router !

Cheers again mate, very useful ;)

I have a possible solution to the router/computer communication problem.

I was having the same trouble, after my connection had been open for a while my pc would lose contact with the 205, requiring a full reboot before I could get my conection back. After at least 7 phone calls to BT technical support, I got them to admit that there is a fault, although not with the router itself, rather the routers own firewall.

To disable the routers firewall:

reboot your system, then open your web browser. In the address bar enter:
192.168.1.1
This will open the BT Voyager Configuration Manager. Click 'advanced' then 'advanced' again. It will ask you for your username and password, unless you have specified you own the default for both username and password is: admin

in the side bar click 'security' then at the top click 'Intrusion Protection', click 'disable' then 'apply'.

Before doing this my connection had held for an hour at most before my pc lost the 205, as I'm typing this it is now at 21hrs connected so it seems to work for me. I'm using the ethernet connection, I don't know if this will work for USB users.

The explanation BT gave me was that the routers firewall is faulty, and can be triggered by perfectly legitimate and clean data entering the router, at which point it drops contact with your 'puter. The reason Bittorrent or p2p users experiance this loss of connection to the 205 more frequently than others is because of the amount of data being recieved. The more data, the more chance of the 205's firewall being false triggered.

Hope this helps
