Network problems

  normskee 14:07 20 Oct 2006

Does anyone know how to get wireless network up and running. We have just received our live box and have a wireless network card in the extra computer.

But can't seem to get it to network.

Any help would be great.

I assume you have installed the Livebox and can connect to the Internet. Also that the other computer is a laptop with card inserted.

On the laptop right click on the network icon at bottom right and choose show available wireless networks. In the window that appears right click on the network icon and choose properties. Hopefully you will receive a message that there is a problem with the network. Click Change advanced settings on the left and choose the wireless network tab. Put a tick in the box to let Windows configure the network and ok out. Don't touch anyhting until its finished.

Also make sure that both pc's have the same Workgroup name. Right click My computer/ properties. Choose the Computer name tab.
