Re: orange livebox

Firewall should be all you need....

antivirus will protect you against email viruses and WEB browser downloads.

I would also recommend you use MS Windows Defender...

Its free and will catch/prevent most spyware

First be sure to check the drivers for your Netgear WG111 are up to date and correspond to your Operating System. It is important to note that there are three versions of the WG111. If you visit the Netgear's Knowledge Base site you can see the difference between the 3 versions (v1,v2 and v3) and select the one that corresponds to you. If you don't know what version you have look for a v1, v2 or v3 after the model name:


After you determine which version you have, let suppose its v3, click the link corresponding to it and download the Software Version 2.0.0 (Supports Win 7) if you are using Windows or the WG111v3 Mac OS Driver Version if you are using a Mac. Once you download the file, run the executable file and install the driver/software for your device.

If your problem is not with drivers then youshould look at you Wireless Network Setup. Please Check that the router has a source of a working internetconnection plugged in correctly via an ethernet cable. Also, routers need fromtime to time to be rebooted. Try disconnecting the router from the power sourcefor 15 to 10 seconds and connect it again.

Post more details concerning your OS, the router you are using and what type ofinternet connection you have(DSL or Cable).

I cannot access the internet by double clicking the icon on start up page ,Ihave to connect through run,wireless zero configuration etc each time. I am using an orange livebox-697F and an Inventel adaptor.

You may need to turn on XP's wireless zero configuration, and set it to start automatically.

Do this as follows:

Start -> Run
Type in services.msc
zwc001.gif Click the OK button, which will bring up the following dialogue.
zwc002.gif You may want to maximise the screen. Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and select it.
zwc003.gif You now have the option to Start the service.
You also need to change the Startup Type from Manual to Automatic
Action -> Properties
zwc004.gif Click OK.
You can now use XP to manage your wireless connection.

I just paid Orange Fr to send a techy to help get my wifi working with my Laptop. All she did was access the wifi icon on my laptop. Once there she tyoed in the code; at this point she pressed the wifi button on the Livebox and hey presto I was in business. The mnistake I was making was to press the Connect button on the Laptop. I think pressing the wifi button is like pairing using Bluetooth. Now all I have to do is get the TV working. How do you connect a SCART outlet to HDMI. My TV is so new there are no SCART ports on it.

Install an updated full version of antivirus. Your antivirus might-be-out of date. I recommend you to use avast or avg 8. They will remove all the viruses they detect from your system. But remember to install only one antivirus because installing more than one antivirus can clash down your computer. After installing the new antivirus, scan your computer and delete all the detected viruses. Delete also your temporary internet files, cookies, cache,etc. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Go to Start, Control Panel.
  • Network and Internet Connections
  • Internet Options
  • In the Browsing History, click Delete...
  • Delete Browsing History box appears, Click Delete All button found at the bottom.
  • Reboot your computer.

Can't set up wireless connection

  1. Check in your system: Click Control Panel, then double click System. On the Hardware tab click Device Manager. Click the (+) sign besides the Network Adapter. See if the Packard bell wireless adaptor is there. If its is not there, right click the Network Adapter and click Scan for hardware changes, and reinstall the network adapter.
  2. If the Packard bell network adapter is already there, click Start and click My Network Places. On the left side of the Network Connection, click View Network Adapter. The wireless network adapter should be there. Right click the wireless network adapter and choose properties. Give check mark on Show icon in notification area when connected (to show you if there is wireless notification), and give check mark to Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity (to show if the wireless network is disconnected). and click OK
  3. Turn on the orange broadband livebox. And right click the the wireless network connection (on Network Connection) and choose View Available Wireless Networks. And the click the Orange broadband Livebox to use this wireless Network connection.
I hope this solution is helpful to solve your problems

Best Regards

Connecting powerline ethernet adapters through orange livebox

Try to eliminate the problem into smaller parts. Try networking the two via the same power outlet via a multiple power board first in the same room. I don't have much experience with these powerline ethernet but i'm sure the configuration of these will be very similar as wireless router / access points and wireless adapter cards. However what I do know is that your power outlets need to be on the same "phase" of your electrical power system, so if you do this test I suggest (from one outlet board) you know the equipment works and your setup procedure works. then try seperating again and if it still doesnt work, check if your power outlets are wired on seperate phases (depends if your house has 3 phase wiring incoming to your home or not). Try another room or another outlet.
