"BT Voyager 100 USB Modem"

When we signed up for AOL Broadband we were told that a modem would, naturally, be included as part of the package.

The modem that we received was a BT Voyager 100. The BT Voyager 100 is small and compact and -touch wood!- has never given us any cause for concern.

Hooking it up is very easy. Hey. If I can do it, so can almost anyone else! You plug a blue cable into the USB port on the modem. The yellow cable is then plugged into the BT ADSL MF50 line box which is plugged into the phone point. You load the software into the computer, and you are well away, as the saying goes.

With AOL the setting up process regarding the modem is virtually automatic so should not present you with any problems whatsoever.

The BT Voyager 100 is light in weight and, as I said before, compact in size and dimensions. It is just under 4.5 inches long, 3.5 inches wide and about 1 inch in depth.

I sometimes have to work from home, and my wife, as a freelance feature writer, always works from home, so the BT Voyager 100 does tend to get some rather heavy use.

There is one point that you do need to be rather careful with. Never, ever allow your BT Voyager 100 modem to sit on a surface that reflects heat or insulates heat. For example, on a bed or a sofa. This is because the BT Voyager 100 can generate a considerable amount of heat and you do need to ensure that the cooling vents are not covered up in any way at all.

The BT Voyager 100 is a great little piece of kit. I saw it in a sale at about £30.00 or so. If only AOL was quite as good as the BT Voyager 100!

    My NTL modem is pretty cool too, although I'm not sure I could find much to say about it. Jane x
