Accessing the BT Voyager 220V settings(advanced users only)The router and its settings are pre-configured for full functionality and do not need to be adjusted for general use.To change the router settings, access the router configuration manager byclicking on the router manager icon on your computer desktop. Alternatively, open your browser and type http://voyager220v.home in the address bar. You will need to enter the configuration manager username and password. The configuration manager default username and password are both ‘admin’, although you can change this to your own choice. If you forget any changes you make to the configuration manager username or password, you will need to reset the router, returning it to its default settings.Resetting the BT Voyager 220V (advanced users only)To return the router to its factory setting, you need to press and hold the reset button on the router’s back panel for ten seconds. The power light will show redto indicate that resetting is in progress. The reset process may take several minutes, after which the power light will turn green. The unit should now be reset andready for normal use.
That link will take you to the router setup manual
Once in the setup you should beable to see what the adresses the router is using and if DHCP is enabled which it should be by default i would hope if it isnt then enable it.
what i would do is in command prompt (cmd in the run)
type ipconfig /release and the ipconfig /renew this should force the cpu to get all the tcp/ip infomation from the router
You just got to get the cpu and the router singing from the same hym sheet (same network ie first 3 octecs of ip addy) before its going to communicate

I have tried getting into the Router via the Router Manager, it just returns a message saying 'unable to connect to the Router', when I open the Browser, it more or less gives me the same result, and when I again do a health check I get the message re Gateway configuration....or is there another way into the Router.....

ok normally the router address will be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 what i would do is input manually one of those network addresses into the cpu by going into tcp propities and setting it to use this address.
enter first cpu ip 192.168.0.2
default gateway 192.168.0.1
if that dont work and you are unable to connect repeat with these addresses
default gateway 192.168.1.1
you could even try and ping the router by typing in cmd that should give you the address
