    Orange Livebox

    I have had my WII since the launce date (8/12/06) and in all this time I have been unable to connect to the internet via my Orange Livebox. I have tried ever possible thing I know (which is considerable as work in IT). I have taken the wii to a mates house and it connected to the internet via his router in seconds! That was really infuriating! Does anyone have or has had a similar problem with the Orange Livebox and if so how did they solve?

    Is there anyone out there that can please help!! I need to get onto that virtual console!

    You can try turning off the firewall on the Livebox, worked for me.

    You can use the Orange/Wanadoo livebox. Try it with your WEP protection turned off to begin with.

    When you do turn on encryption, I think the livebox needs to be set to WEP only (rather than WEP & WPA), but I could be wrong.

    Remember, you need to press the "1" button on the livebox and the wireless light needs to be flashing in order for your Wii to "see" it. This discovery mode times out after 10 minutes.

    This definitely can be done, I set it up for a mate a while back.

    [EDIT] Your WEP key is printed on a sticker underneath the livebox, it's a 26 digit code if i recall correctly. (Remember there are only A-F and 0-9, no "O's"

    Hi everyone, just to let u all know that I've solved the problem with my wii. I changed the security from WEP and WPA to WEP only. Restarted the router, ran the test and was connected in seconds!! Thanks for your help everyone!

    glad to hear you got it working! but my livebox won't connect properly, my wii will only connect if i restart the livebox each time, if i enter a game, or go into a channel and then try to test the connection or use a net channel the connection has dropped. At first I had security on and it wouldn't connect at all, so i have no security at all, with firewall off, got connection at last, but then gave me this drop out problem.
    Anyone have anymore ideas?

    If I remember correctly, the livebox has an internal list of connected devices. I know there are a lot of different versions of the live box out there, but when you do manage a connection, what does it see your Wii as ??
