I currently have a desktop operating with XP and aol bt voyager 105 usb adsl modem, I've recently bought a laptop with Vista and cannot get on the internet as when I try to install original aol disc it is not compatible, is there something I could download on desktop and transfer to laptop to get me started ?
3. Download AOL 9.1 to save to the USB drive. If an automatic download attempt starts, just cancel it.
4. Disconnect the USB drive from the XP desktop and connect to the Vista laptop.
5. Access the USB drive and copy the AOL install file to your Vista laptop hard drive.
6. Remove the USB drive and connect the ADSL modem to your Vista laptop.
7. With the ADSL modem connected, go to the downloaded file in your hard drive and double-click it to run the install. With the ADSL model connected, it will simplify the installation because the AOL install will see the DSL link during some of the automated steps pertaining to determining the connection type.
After the install is done, run AOL and signon as you normally would.

I recently had this problem after buying a voyager 210 modem/router to replace the voyager 105 (in my case supplied for AOL broadband)
I tried to uninstall the voyager 105 and encountered exactly this problem - newdev.dll missing, Admin privileges required
After alot of Internet searching I found no answers. But in desperation tried this and it worked. I am by no means any computer expert so don’t blame me if this does not work for you, or damages your machine.
To install my 210 modem I was following instructions found here -http://www.sohodata.co.uk/soho.htm But first I had to get rid of the 210
Here is what I did, exactly as I did it (some of it is probably unnecessary) Further below is a condensed version I expect would work.
1) Firstly I restarted in safe mode by pressing F8 in start-up ( I was doing this because i had remembered an administrator profile and considered attempting to uninstall from there.)
2) I logged on as the administrator.
3) Attempted to uninstall the voyager 105 via control panel and via the uninstall icon in the programme folder. - Both Failed with the above-mentioned problem.
4) I navigated to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files)
5) There I highlighted the folders "British Telecom”, "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", "Voyager Test". I cut these folders wholesale and pasted them to my USB pen/stick (incase I needed to put them back)
6) I then ran disk cleanup (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools.)
7) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged the USB pen/stick and the USB and DSL cables from the back of the Voyager 105.
8)I turned the computer back on (starting up normally), logged on with my normal username which has admin privileges. Ran the driver install for my new router (previously downloaded from BT at –(http://www.btopenworld.com/broadband/adhoc_pages/driver_homepage.html#yahoodrivers) It stated that a BT driver was already installed.
9) Navigated to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall …. AND IT DID IT! No error, or messages about newdev.dll or privileges.
10) This left me free to install my new driver and go through its install process ending in plugging the USB into the back of the modem and having internet again.
Here is what I expect would work
1) Turn on and log on to any account with admin privileges.
2) Navigate to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files).
3) Select and delete (or to be safe, cut and paste to a removable drive) the folders "British Telecom", "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", and "Voyager Test".
4) Remove removable drive and run disk clean up (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools).
5) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged existing modem.
6) Turn on computer log back onto account with admin privileges. Navigate to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall.
7) Install desired drivers/modem.

As i understand correctly, you canot make the modem work with windows vista, right?
Make sure that the OS Window Vista has not encountered any problems while installation process.
Try to create a conectoid
click start>control panel>internet connection>network and sharing center>setup a new connection or network>connect to the internt>broadband PPPoE> Enter you User ID and the Password (contact your ISP) confirm the password and click connect.
You should be conected.
Make sure the ADSL LINK or DSL light on the modem is solid before you create the connectoid.
Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?
Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
