Can BT Voyager 220 router be re-flashed so it works with non-BT ADSL?

    I have a BT Voyager 220 router which I acquired when a customer was
    replacing it with a Home Hub to allow him to use BT Vision.

    The router seems to be programmed only to work with BT Internet ADSL: when I
    try to change the ADSL username and password to any other ISP's values that
    relate to the line which I am connecting it to, I get a message saying that
    the router is locked to BT accounts.

    Is there any way of re-flashing the router to remove the BT-specific code?
    It would be useful to use the router as a spare when testing customers'

    That's the bog's dollocks! Exactly what I was looking for.

    I've re-flashed the router using the unlocked version of the firmware and I
    can now use it on any ADSL line - just to prove it I've temporarily
    connected it in place of my own Netgear router and that's how I'm connected
    while posting this reply!
