I have recently reinstalled windows XP on my machine and although able to connect to my Orange Livebox its a bit a of Hassle. I have SP3 now.
I am using a Netgear USB W111 adaptor. I am on Orange Broadband and using the Livebox. I cannot seem to use Netgear to connect as it seems stuck on Network Aquiring Address and then gives me the limited connectivity message. To connect when I log on I first of all have to untick the box so that netgear attempts(but fails) then re tick the box so that windows finds the internet settings. Windows then connects to the internet. This maybe ok for me when I kind of know what I'm doing but not for my other half.
On looking at the netgear stats there is no IP address listed.
please help I'm getting an earful off the missus.
