Hi all i have just installed a relatives orange live box for them and it was working wired but i then tried to connect wireless and it will connect to the live box but it won't connect to the internet now either wired or wireless it is asking for a username and password i have tried the username and password that orange supplied but no joy. Is there a standard username and password that the live box is set to?#

XP SP2 firewall disabled.
Panda titanium antivirus (disabled)
Belkin wireless usb dongle.
Any other info needed just ask.

Are you trying to set up the same pc that you connected wired first and now wirelessly?

  Koochy 12:25 05 Nov 2006

Yeah that is what i am trying to do as the main bt socket is down stairs in the front room and the pc is upstairs in the back bedroom so i would like to have the live box downstairs and use it wireless.

Can you get into he livebox configuration page?

  Koochy 15:02 05 Nov 2006

No i am not able to get into it as it is asking for a username and password but the username and password supplied by orange don't work so i was wondering if it is just a generic username and password the same as other wireless routers.

to get into the livebox username is admin and so is the password

Thanks for that and sorry i haven't posted back sooner i have been down with the flu. I have just been down to my aunties this morning and all is well now i went into the live box configuration using the passwords you gave and all i needed to do was enter the username and password for the orange internet account.

Thanks again for your help

Hi everybody,
I was wondering if any body could help me? After installing orange wireless, I 'am connected ok on the broadband, but seem unable to use the telephone connection on the livebox, unless I switch off the computer and live box. Power back up but do not switch on the computer. Having gone through Orange Help lines I have been refered to those up stairs whoever they are. That was 4 months ago. Anybody please!
