Please can anyone advise me on the following,I have a PC connected to Wanadoo Broadband Livebox, via USB wireless adaptor(supplied by Wanadoo).

I will be getting a new laptop in a few days time,my question is,will I be able to connect to the "Livebox" using the laptops wi-fi connection or will I have to buy another USB wireless adaptor from Wanadoo,if I am able to connect using the laptops wi-fi connection, please could you explain in detail how to do this.

I'm on Wanadoo broadband, but I've got a Belkin wireless modem/router. I recently bought an Acer centrino laptop. All I did was turn on the laptop, enable the WLAN and it picked up all the wireless networks in the vicinity. I then selected my network, connected, entered the WEP security key for my network and away it went!

You need to go to this page click here relating to the connection of third-party wireless devices to a Wanadoo Livebox.

There are separate instructions depending whether you have:

(a) XP or XP SP1
(b) XP SP2
