Ah awesome, was having no luck connecting to my Livebox, no one told me the 1 button needed to be held down for 5 seconds! Got it connected now. Thanks.
Great, thanks. Worked with my Ipad 2
maybe think about the book of words and pictures that came with the device.
Thank you very much. I followed your advice and it worked perfectly.

Thank you
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.

actually you could manually specify WAN settings for non-SID connections
it does not work
Thank you
You have to press the pair button under the live box
Thank you
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
hi everyone, I have pressed the 1 button on my livebox so it flashes but when I try to connect to the network I enter my wep key but it doesn't accept it??

does it have to have spaces in between or should I get rid of them, and should I use uppercase or lowercase letters.

thanks in advance
Don't put spaces...
Nice one - worked a treat on mine had been pulling my hair out trying to connect to my Orange Livebox
i cant obtain the ip adresses
Thank you
use capitals
