Hi all, I have just got an Orange Livebox 3775 and when I try to connect wirelessly to my laptop I get a message saying I need to enter a network key. On my BT adsl router in the UK the number was clear but on the livebox I can't figure out which number is which (its all in french as thats where I'm living at the mo. I can get to the internet wireleesly through my Mac mini but can't get my laptop to connect. Any suggestions?

Thanks Crosstrainer. I managed to find the number but when I enter it I get an error message which says the number needs to be 40 bits or 104 bits depending on your network connection

It is usually on the base of the LiveBox. ;-)

Thanks Gandalf, I now have the number after following crosstrainers advice but I still need to get the laptop to accept it.

Could this be something to do with differences in the telephony sustems in France? If so, you might need to speak to the company that supplies your telepone line.
