Hello, can someone please help me.My friend is livebox connected and I want to link up using WiFi but my PC see's the livebox but is unable to connect. There seems to be a padlock symbol showing that needs to be unlocked. I have asked my friend who cannot get into the livebox software as he has forgotten his username and password. I have tried ringing Orange to no avail. What can I do?

Thank you
the padlock it the wep key which is written on the bottom of the livebox, also make sure you press the number 1 button on the livebox to sync it wiv pc otherwise it will just be a pending connection :O)

but how do you do it on a wii, is the password 26 digits ?
yes the password is the digits on the bottom of the box, I think it says WEP key next to it, when connectin wii press the number 1 button on the livebox to start syncing it put in the password (WEP key-digits) on the wii. The password is case sensistive so make sure you have the capitals on and dont worry about typing in the - between, only the numbers/letters. :O)
and let me know if this works :O)
it is not gonna be solved guys without the help of me
HMM, most of it has been resolved lol

Thank you
You have to put the livebox in "association" mode : http://translate.google.com/...
And after, you have to configure your wireless connection on Vista : http://translate.google.com/...
The Wep key is on the livebox label : http://translate.google.com/...

Thanks for the heads up, but even tweeking the items you suggested I still have no connection. In fact the error messages state:

1) Limited or No Connectivity (I have tried to repair this and I got the following error message :- Invalid IP address)

2) I have tried to set up the network but it doesn't register the WIFI product being disconnected and reconnected and throws up a microsoft error message 871122

The padlock symbol has still not been released from my network connections diagram, so I can see info is being passed from my PC to the livebox but it is not communicating with me.

What else can I do?
Thank you
forgot my pastword can I change it
hi yes you can, you have to reset the router, its a tiny button somewhere on the router usually use a paperclip ect to push it, usuall found by other buttons

Thank you
Go to to" Internet Options"--->Then click on the "Connections" tab and click on "LAN Settings..." button and verify if the case "Use a proxy server for your LAN " is always unchecked.

Just a quick message of thanks, as I am now up and working.

Thank you
Read this concerning the microsoft error message 871122 : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/871122/en
See you
Thanks again for the heads up, but now I have another problem that goes onwards from clearing the last.

According to my computer I can now be connected to the livebox, but when I try to connect to the internet I get the following message come up

403 Forbidden

and the words underneath that read: Access Denied and something about Access Control List?

Can you help?
hi just reading ur post, re error 403 usually means webpage doesnt exist or is a 'bad' page, if you know the webpage your visiting is legit then it can mean you have a virus of sorts...
Thank you

I'm having similar problems...exchanged my old livebox for the new mini 2 now I can't connect my lappy either with WIFI or ethernet...

At first I was having IP problems which is now resolved...
