Hello,
In command prompt (with admin privleges)
Try to ping a domain name. For example:

ping youtube.com

Does it list an IP address? Do you get reply's? If you get replys then the internet on your son's laptop should be working. Try and make sure there are no proxies setup. Its a brand new laptop so there shouldn't be but check anyways.

In Internet Explorer goto tools, internet options, connections tab, lan settings button. Make sure the box use a proxy server for your LAN is unchecked.

If you don't get an ip address or reply's it would most likely signify that your DNS settings are incorrect. Verify the correct DNS settings by typing in 'ipconfig /all' in command prompt. It will show what your DNS ip address is set to. Make sure the settings are the same on the other laptop.

If they mismatch then you may have some settings incorrect in your wireless router, or the laptop itself, or both.

The ideal solution in that case is to resolve the dns issue on the wireless router, but for a quick solution, you can set the router to be the DNS host on the laptop. The process for doing so is OS specific. A quick google search should lead in the right direction.

If further problems persist, it may be a problem with the OS itself, or the hosts file.

Good Luck

You need to out the Livebox into pairing mode to allow the iPod Touch to connect.
Press the button marked '1' on the back of the Livebox. This will start the wireless LED flashing and puts the Livebox into 'Pairing' mode.
Use the WEP key that is printed on the label on the bottom of the Livebox.
NOTE: There is a limit to the number of devices you can connect.(6)

Cant find the switch on my laptop to make me wireless


I can't find any info about that laptop on the internet. If you have xp, go to start menu, control panel, network connections and see if you have a wireless internet connection in there. If not, you do not have a wireless card in your laptop. If you do have that connection, right click to enable it.
Please rate, thanks!

WPA is safer as all in all it's a lot harder to crack due to being a lot more characters in the passkey. The easiest thing to do would be explain how i have mine set up. And you could compare the 2.. As i have XP Desktop & Vista aswell. So your Laptop connects ok now but is still an unsecure network.. On your Dektop. When you try to connect. Are you entering the 26 character key on the bottom of the livebox?

The main thing to realise with the Livebox is everything is reversible.. And to not worry about changing something..

So let's get this started, When you open up the " Connect To A Network " you can see your Livebox-XXXX. Next to that does it say "Unsecured Connection"? If this is the case then your Livebox is still not properly configured.. What i would recommend doing is starting a fresh with the Livebox, and i explain how to set it all up from Default. icon_smile.gif

IF you don't remember your internet login details then go to "Configuration.adsl" and click My Services then Internet. Your info will be in there. Hopefully you remember your password.. icon_smile.gif

If you don't know how to do a reset of your liveox. Press and hold the "1" button on the back of your livebox. Unplug it from the mains whilst still holding the "1" for 10 seconds. Then plug it back in. [ still holding the "1" ] The lights will flash a bit and after a minute or two it will go back to normal.

Go back to "configuration.adsl"
Username: Admin
Password: Password

If i start from the top section and work down it should make it easier to follow:
My Services>Internet>Connection Parameters Filled In..
Phone Over ADSL> Nothing needs changing
Digital TV> Nothing Needs Changing.
Liveprinter> Nothing Needs Changing.
Submit

Security> Associated Devices> Will Be Empty
Firewall> Medium
Wireless Connection> Channel Number> 11
Security Key(WPA-TKIP)> Same As What's On Bottom Of Livebox.
Enable Wireless Lan> Ticked.
Submit

Configuration> Update> v5.10.7-uk
Administrator> Change the password while you're there..
Submit

Advanced> Wireless> Pairing Time> 10 minutes should be fine.
Your Livebox name can be left as it is.
WPA Security Only
Wi-Fi Easy Pairing.. Might aswell leave it on..
Submit

Now if we set up your laptop first.
Go into Connect To A Network. Your Livebox should be there. It also SHOULD say Secured Network. If there is a Red Cross then you will need to do what i suggested yesterday on my previous post.

Go back to connect.. Enter the 26 char. passkey with caps lock on.. And you should be connected no problem.

Now for the Desktop.

when you log on.. In the taskbar in the bottom right should be something to do with wireless networks. Double click this.. If it mentions something about using the software that came with the device.. Then use the software.. If not then windowsXP will show your network. Double click it.. Enter the same 26 character code.. And you SHOULD be connected.

Let me know if that works.. Sorry for the really long post, but detail is something i do quite well... icon_smile.gif

Have a look at the F keys at the top of the keypad. The fn key is a toggle key. It changes the mode to something and then back again when you press it. There will be an F key with a picture of a keyboard on it (probably) (Dont press the one with the the picture of a computer on or your screen will go off)
Press fn and the keyboard Fkey together to toggle back to alpha keyboard rather than numeric.
