Free router CD

I've just recieved my free router BT 1800 HG (very quick by the way - only requested it on Saturday) and downloaded the manual from the PN page. The manual refers to an installation cd but I had no cd or instructions in my package - was I supposed to or is the software downloadable from somewhere?

You could probably download it but it will not have the same stuff as the original disc.

although if this is with a plain router then it should not need any software to be able to communicate with your computer as it only plugs in via ethernet so no detection is necessary.

You're probably right, the PN installation guide doesn't refer to any software, but the pdf manual say the "Intelligent Gateway software" must be installed on every computer in the network. I'll just give it a go tomorrow and see what happens.

Hi,

There isn't actually a CD with the BT1800HG router, unfortunately it lists it in the manual when there isn't one. The software that it would have included is the USB drivers which you can get from here:
