    There should be no difference...try turning off all your security (wep etc) and then connect...

    Lots of similar problems.

    I find I have to start stop interfaces, change Wep etc quite a lot now

    :-(

    Try rebooting your router.

    And restarting the eee.

    LOL emasu, you should work on the AOL helpdesk

    bear with me cause im not brill with this sort of things but had massive probs the other week and still not sure what i did to get it up and running again, was fine on desktop but not lappy

    When you deleted the connection and rebooted tha laptop did it search for the networks? did it find them

    weird. my gf's eee and livebox have worked perfectly since first pairing.

    whe you deleted the connection on eee and rebooted, and found the connection did it ask for your key?

    you press the pairing button on the router?

    i had ths when my laptop hadnt been online for 3 days )i had connected the telephone wire into wrong hole in livebox - lol) got desktop back when plugged in to right hole -lol, But not lappy i spent over half hour on phone to orange who then informed me my laptop had no wireless card (although had been on net for 3 years with it - lol) i had loadsa help on here but nothing helped, i spent all day on it, deleting this, pressing this and pressing that when eventually i got it sorted but sadly i did that much i dont know exactly what did to get it back

    If you have rebooted your router and the laptop is connected and you have deleted connection and rebooted, and paired i dont know what else to suggest, but hang in there someone will help

    connect it using a ethernet cable then access the live box config pages using the eee. reset the security to none and reboot. connect eee usinf wifi. then using eee and ethernet access live box config again and select wep and reboot. then reconnect eee.

    well its something ive had to do with an advent that had same problem. had to do it a couple times when new for some reason but no more.

    Does the Livebox not support WPA? You should really be using that instead of WEP. (the eee definitely supports it, my 701 is connected to my WPA wireless network).
