Hi all,
Hope some one can help with a wireless connection fault.
I have an Orange wireless livebox package that works fine with my main pc and second phone line[included in the package].
I have a problem connecting a 2nd pc to the system.
I am getting a strong signal telling me the livebox is in range and the pc is ''wireless zero configured''.
The livebox cd did not install properly --- it was ok up to the very last ''connection'' step.
I have checked the wireless adapter and the ''device'' is working.
I cannot check with an ethernet cable as the 2nd pc has no ethernet socket.
Thanks.

Hi there :)

If the livebox CD did not install properly the only thing I can suggest you do is contact Orange at http://help.orange.c...rvice/index.jsp

They should provide free service for this kind of problem and you will get much better support from someone who knows more about how that router and software work than us.

At first glance though, make sure that your second computer is working on the same type of wireless as the other computer and the router whether it be 802.11b or 802.11g
