This page is for people wishing to use their BT Voyager 220V VoIP modem with internet service providers other than BT Broadband. For an easy life just scroll down to the firmware download section and follow the instructions. At this time using the VoIP features is not discussed.
From version 3.01z (and possibly earlier) onwards the BTR firmware for
BT Voyager 220V modems no longer supported ISP usernames that did not match
whitelist contained within the device. The firmware images below
have been modified to remove this restriction.
If you have an ISP that does not use PPP (for example O2 Broadband) you may not need this firmware because it is only pppd that has restrictions.
Update: I recently learn firmware with the BBV suffix does not appear to have any locking. Therefore I recommend using this unmodified firmware.
For people wanting more than just getting their modem to work:
Download the firmware version you would like to use. Usually the most recent is best (unless it has only been tested a little).

Q: Do you know the difference between SIP BTR and SIP BBV firmware versions? I believe that BTR version ship on units supplied to home users and BBV is for business users.
Q: eBay has auctions selling Voyager 220v modems unlocked with what the seller calls "unlock codes". I suspect they are simply using older firmware and the unlock promise is a fraud. Do you know otherwise?
I can be contacted if you have any comments.
Many people have helped me get this far. Most without realising it...
