Livebox wireless problem

  Keebers 23:21 16 Jan 2007

I have recently changed from a Netgear Modem/Router to an Orange livebox (for the free 'phone) and cannot now connect our second PC by wireless (it worked fine with the Netgear modem). The wifi card sees the Livebox and vice-versa and they communicate OK (tested by pinging) but the PC cannot connect to the internet. The PC runs Windows ME and has an internal wifi card. I have tried the suggestions on the Orange website to no avail. Any good ideas gratefully received!
