orange broadband

hi there, wonder if anyone can help

we have orange broadband - with the livebox- i can use my laptop wirelessly with it no problem bt for some reason we cannot connect to the internet with the main PC which has a wired connection to the livebox - orange told us to turn the firewall settings on and off and try connecting both ways - the diagnosis o vista says it cannot be rosolved - that we need to contact service provider but they havent been too helpful

we are running vista and have changed nothing so cannot understand why all of a sudden it has stopped connecting . as i say my laptop connects fine

any ideas?

Can you connect to the livebox?

type click here or type http:// configuration.adsl/ (without the space) in your browser address line.

you will now be connected to the livebox click on "Access to the configuration pages (access to these pages is restricted, you must have the password)."

Input the username and password (admin for both if you have not changed it)
