Laptop (Vista Home) to Orange Livebox

  dprestidge 17:28 20 Aug 10

I'm having a problem getting my son's latest laptop to connect to my livebox. My desktop Mac and my work laptop connect wi-fi to the livebox with no problems. The new laptop (running Vista Home)recognises the LB with a strong signal, but when I put the security code in and click connect, it gives me an immediate error message. Can anyone help, please?

It is normally necessary to put a Livebox into "pairing" mode when connecting a new Wireless Network adapter that wasn't bundled with the router to it. Have you done this?

Right..(a) is this button '1' or '2'? and (b) at what stage of the connection process do I do this?

It appears to be button 1 which should be pressed before trying to connect the wireless adapter, but have a look at this page - click here

Thanks, mgmcc - will try that tomorrow.
