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?

14 responses

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)

what do you mean by the number 1 button?????... I have rang orange and they say the wifi button but still no connections??

Thanks if you can help me!!

concerning botton 1 is the association number for livebox Inventel you must press until Diode wifi flashes

for Sagem 1.1 ............> REG boten
for Sagem 1.2 or V2 or thomson..............> wifi botton

If you have some question especially about livebox and wifi I invite you to visit this site if you have difficalties to understand fransh translate the page
good luck

God Allah with you all
the number 1 button is on the back of the livebox, there is a number 1 and number 2 button. if you push number 1 it will go into pairing mode and the lights on top of your livebox will flash, when its flashing/after youve pressed it you will have 10 minties to connect to it.

Exactly when am I supposed to press that Button Number 1?
I can only connect my iPod Touch or/and my laptop when the light is flashing (which it does automatically when I enable wifi in the LIvebox security configuration settings). Then, after a few days or so, it stops flashing and I lose any ability to connect. Sometimes this happens while I am connected. Pressing Button 1 does nothing. I click on the LIvebox icon, disable Wifi, then re-enable it. The light flashes, and I connect.

The manual (in Spanish) mentions nothing about using the buttons (or any other feature other than basic installation).
Help! It's driving me crazy!

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/...
Best regards
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?
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

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.

Read this concerning the microsoft error message 871122 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/871122/
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...

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

Now when trying to connect on the lappy ..browser advises the connection has timed out...

I have sorted the "LAN Settings..." and verified that "Use a proxy server for your LAN " is unchecked. ... (it wasnt previously but is now) but I still cannot connect...
