    orange livebox wireless

    i do have another problem now with orange livebox, lol

    ok, i just got the livebox and hooked it up, the password has to be 26 characters?

    ive got mine on wireless but using the same settings and password etc i cant get saz's on wireless. also my friend who lives above has been using my wireless and he cant get on this one either so i know it aint her laptop....any ideas?

    and with orange, do i have to use the livebox? or can i use my netgear, which is a lot easier to configure lol

    na i need it. mine is working fine. i just cant get my partners lappy connected...may be a prob with her lappy???

    how did u do it? did u not have to change the password security from WEP ro WPA??? i did as my laptop didnt have WEP option...and its 26 characters? no way of changing it?

    my settings are the same as hers but still not working/ tho it works when i plug the network cable from the livebox into her laptop..

    have you tried putting the disc in the other computers?

    Cant really remember just followed the on screen to set up main comp, then followed it to connect lappy which is wifi enabled, i just put in the password that came with the disc, what do you mean you need it, if you lready have a router why do you need a livebox :?

    Did you use the cable on the first connection?

    dunno if this helps, but you have to press the switch on the livebox to make them pair. Then you should be able to connect and enter the key.
    Think the button is 2 and will pair for upto 10 mins.
    I would cut and paste the key, as sometimes uppercase character enter as lowercase (bizarre).
    Hope it helps ya
