Connecting to Orange Livebox

  tonyt1151 18:09 27 May 2008

I have just returned from my Father's where I tried connecting my wireless laptop to his Livebox. The laptop found the wireless signal and asked for the security key which I thought was the 22 digit number on the label on the base of the Livebox. I entered this number but was unable to connect. Is the correct procedure? if not where or how can I get the correct key? He has a laptop using the Livebox wirelessly. We both have Vista O/S

It is the Security Code number that you need on the base of the Livebox I think it is 26 digit,I would make sure you use upper case letters,also make sure you have the livebox in pairing mode by pressing the "1" button on the back of the livebox before you click on connect on the laptop.

Thanks for that info. I was using the correct code number but didn't have livebox in pairing mode.Would I need to install any Livebox software into my laptop or is just a case of entering code and putting L/box in pairing mode? Also would any of this affect my father's pc

if your laptop is wireless enabled or whatever they call it you should be able to connect without any other software,neither should it affect your fathers PC.
