Well the only thing that you forgot is to make the livebox detectable and you can do so by pressing the button under under the livebox just beside the power cord. And after that just try to reconnect your computer by entering again the wep key.
I recently purchased a new computer and wanted to connect to my Orange wireless network (the original style hardware). My PC could see the livebox but no matter what I did it still wouldn't connect. Finally I rang Orange and there is a procedure called pairing (likely for blocking potential hackers)
I was advised to hardwire the PC to the livebox using the red ethernet cable and press the #1 button located on the rear of the livebox. Then enter the network key - this worker for me
