Connect using an Ethernet cable first of all. Once all set up, THEN go wireless using security code password for wireless.

Do the same for each new computer. Ethernet direct connection first, then wireless once you KNOW it's working.

My computer is not wireless and i need an ethernet cable to access the internet via my livebox. i would like to move my pc so can i attach a wireless router to the pc and connect wirelessly to the livebox....


If the computer is a desktop you can purchase a wireless card and install internally or use a USB wireless dongle. The dongle will also work for a laptop.

I just bought this brand sony vaio new laptop and it has windows home premium on it... Then the ms Office home/student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key..


You need to register the Vaio and if you are using the MS office that came on the computer you will need to go through the purchase and registration process. The version they put on computers today is a 90 day temporary trial that requires you to purchase a product key to continue using it. You can go to Walmart, Target, Best Buy and purchase the software there to get your key if you prefer. It will cost the same.

What shall i do to have an access to internet?


Depending on where you are, you should normally need to subscribe with an internet provider. They will provide you with a modem/router for you to connect to your computer. Connection to your computer is normally directly to the router via a network cable or via a wireless network if this is available.

Some countries or establishments (cafe, libraries, etc.) offer free internet connections so if you do not need to connect from home and are an infrequent user, this option should suffice. The Sony Vaio should be capable to connect to any of the options above.

I cannot connect my laptop as my second computer


This could be that your not pressing the association button on the LIvebox when trying to connect, i think its button two on the back, try both of them. The Livebox will flash it's light on the top when in association mode and you will be able to connect

Girlfriend has new aspire one we are trying to connect to home wireless network on orange with a live box acer was set up to someone else's network we can get it to see livebox on acer but will not connect...


You need too set up a totally new network.goto networks,click setup new network and follow the instructions. You will need the password for the livebox and more than likely need to call your network provider. If you have a desktop pc in the building its probably easier to set up a Home network

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Orange Livebox and NIC


Sounds like an internal problem with the Orange Livebox NIC controller.

If you have an other router Lynksys/belkin you could try it would isolate the problem definitively

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.
