bt voyager 210

hello, should the USB light on the router be lit please ? [ other four are lit okay ]
on 31st August my broadband was down and was told  by phone it was the usb lead.
by today, fed up with waiting for response i got hold of a new one.
am obviously now connected but usb light remains unlit.
also learnt by e-mail that i am now on a new year contract for new router
think it may have been misunderstood reason why all lights were unlit when phoned today.[although had explained that had disabled it earlier on in the week.
thanks 
[ by the way, in the reply will you tell me the price of the new router, thanks again

Re: bt voyager 210

have they changed your Package?
you should be able to get a router from james for the princly sum of £6.99 Post and package on deferred cost, i.e. if you leave within a year you pay for the router

I imagine the USB light should be lit if you are using a USB connection but not if you don't.  You can use either a USB or an Ethernet (network) connection.  If your computer has a network port I would advise you to use the latter and only very old computers do not have a network port.  As I remember, the Voyager 210 is supplied with a blue USB cable and a yellow Ethernet cable.
