Can anyone help?

I recently swapped from AOL to BT Yahoo Broadband.

The installation went fine until the computer tried to install the driver for the router.

A bt voyager 205

I got an error message which said it could not find registry key...blah blah...

I downloaded a new copy of the router driver but my computer wont let me load the driver. Consequently I have no internet connection at home.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem and if so have you solved it?

I use the same router but the usb driver installed fine for me. However, the 205 has an alternative means of connecting to the PC -- it's called 'ethernet'
and this does NOT require a driver. Your PC needs to have a network card installed --- they only cost a tenner or less and easy to fit into a PCI slot.
Your PC may already have one fitted. Check round the back of your PC for an ethernet socket (looks like a phone socket but not as wide, and the BT ethernet cable will fit into it) Disconnect the USB cable, re-install the software from the BT Yahoo CD but choose to use ethernet instead of usb this time. When prompted, connect the modem to the PC with the ethernet cable which should have been supplied in your BT Yahoo Broadband pack.
