BT Voyager 190 unlock problem

  1. Hi,
    I bought a BT voyager 190 adsl ethernet modem off ebay which was locked to AOL. Being a Tiscali Broadband customer (I'm from the UK) I needed to unlock it to make it work. I am frustrated with the unreliability of the usb modem provided. I found this software and elsewhere on the site it said all you had basically to do was point your browser to 192.168.1.1 and update the firmware to the unlocked version. Easy, I thought. This is what I did:
    1. Disconnect my usb modem completely and connected up the voyager.
    2. Turn the power on and wait for 4 green lights.
    3. Open IE and type in 192.168.1.1-nothing.
    4. Went here and tried what they said but ipconfig just came out with "Windows IP configuration" and no ethernet recognition it seems.

    So basically my computer dosen't seem to realise ethernets connected (I'm on xp). Any solutions anyone?
    Thanks

    This is the problem. It is 192.168.0.1 for the BT Voyager 190.
