1-port router

I've just ordered PlusNet Option 2, which comes with a 1-port router.
Just to check.... I can use this installed via USB and connect another PC using the single port correct?

Many thanks.

I'm not sure which of the 2 units comes with BBYW option 2.

If its the BT Voyager 105 then that is a single USB modem (1 PC only). If its a BT Voyager 210 then yes you can have both USB and Ethernet connections in use at the same time (2 PCs).

Can CS confirm which one is currently supplied?

As I understand it the Voyager 105 has been discontinued by PlusNet and it is the BT Voyager 210 one port router that is sent.

Hi,

The hardware we sent out on BBYW Option 2 is the Voyager 210.

Unfortunately you can only use it on one computer at a time, whether this be via USB or Ethernet.

Hope this helps Smiley

Brad, you need to read up on the 210's capabilities. You can use both the USB and Ethernet at the same time.

The product specifications PDF link on This page makes it very clear:

If you only have 1 port on the router you would be best to buy a switch to give you more ports for little more than £20 as ethernet is a much better way to connect than usb.
