Connect Xbox 360 to Orange Livebox

  piggylen 09:05 03 Apr 2009

I am trying to connect my son's Xbox 360 Elite to our Orange Livebox using a wireless connection. I know I need to buy a piece of kit for the Xbox (am going to PC world tomorrow) but I am not sure if the Livebox has wireless capability built in? If it has, how do I get it to work? I have already gone to "start", "Control Panel", "Network Connections" "View available wireless networks".It says "Livebox 59C0" when I get that far, and when I click "Connect" it says "windows is trying to connect to Livebox 59CO Network" but eventually it just goes back to the Network Connections page, and nothing seems to have happened. When I go back onto Network Connections page it still says "wireless network connection Not Connected". Help from plain speaking person PLEASE!!! Thank you

Sorry to be thick, but what is a WPA code or WEP code?

This is the security code in the router it stops other people from accessing your router wirelessly and using your broadband for free or even worse looking at files on your PC.

The WEP /WPA code for the livebox is printed on a sticker on the bottom of the Livebox.

WEP security is very poor so you should set the Livebox to WPA click here
