    Hello Lionman, I have an Orange Lovebox and as the Europe launch has taken place yet I don't think anyone will be able to give you a deffo answer (orange don't operate in USA).

    I think it will be fine though, just remember to press your pairing button on the back of the box when connecting your Wii for the first time. (Orange's new may of MAC filtering).

    Any problems, give me a shout after launch day.

    Im having problems with usinig the orange modem with my wii, the WEP key wouldnt work, so i took all security off the modem and tried connecting, success! but then it disconnects after a while and if i restart the wii.
    The only way i get the connection working again is to turn off the modem and on again and set up the wifi connection all over again, not quite ideal. Ive changed the channel number to 11 for a test, and also tried the using the pairing button on the modem to see if that would change anything, but still no luck. Any ideas?

    orange livebox


    try this''''''''
    I had problems with the connecting of the livebox to the DS at home and have been sent the following from Nintendo....your solution seems to be the easier option as it does not involve any seting changes...do you press the livebox before entering the details of the WEP, and does this have to be done via the Wii MANUAL set-up programme rather than getting the wii to search for an 'open line'

    quote Nintendo....
    1. Change your Livebox configuration. Go to http://configuration.adsl/index2.html which should open your Livebox configuration page on your browser. Use your Orange or Wanadoo or even Freeserve login username and password here. Now go to Configuration -> Advanced -> Wireless and choose the WEP Security Only option. After you submit this your Livebox should flash a bit so give it 5 minutes to adjust itself. On the same window click to Security -> Firewall and choose ‘low’. As long as you have a Firewall on your PC you’ll still be safe. Now click ‘System Information’ as we’ll need all this info in a minute.

    2. Change your Nintendo DS settings. Plug in your game, Mario Kart DS for example, and go to the Nintendo WFC Settings Screen. Choose an empty connection and ‘Search for an Access Point’. You should see your new Livebox come up here as ‘WANADOO’ or ‘ORANGE’ followed by some numbers. Unfortunately you can also see the red lock icon but click it anyway and type in your WEP key as seen on the System Info screen we looked at earlier. Be careful typing this in and remember that you should only use letters A-F and numbers 0-9, no ‘i’s or ‘o’s, and turn CAPS LOCK on. Simple? Well hold on as we’re not finished yet and you’ll come up with an error if you try to connect.

    3. Change your DS Wi-fi settings manually. Now press the ‘Manual Setup’ button on the connection screen which takes you into the settings control panel. You should have a SSID number in there, thats good. And your WEP key should be entered in there too. The rest of the details can be found by refering to your Livebox System Info, but be careful as the requested numbers do not always match up with the correct fields. Therefore you must enter these values exactly how I have specified them:
    Auto-obtain IP Address = choose ‘No’
    IP Address = enter the ‘DHCP server end address’ value
    Subnet Mask = enter ‘255.255.255.0'
    Gateway = enter the ‘LAN IP address’ value
    Auto-obtain DNS = choose ‘No’
    Primary DNS = enter the ‘Primary DNS server’ value
    Secondary DNS = enter the ‘Secondary DNS server’ value

    4. The last bit, honest! Now go over to your Livebox and you should see a small USB-sized socket on the back next to two buttons marked 1 and 2. You need to press button 1. Then select ‘Test Connection’ on the NDS settings screen. With any luck you should get the green wireless icon on your NDS buzzing away with three bars! Now save the settings and play!

    hey thanks for the replies, i eventually got it working, but what i had to do was go into my livebox settings and change the pairing timing from 10 minutes to infinite, seems that the only way for the wii to keep protected, strange cos my DS connected no problem without any changes.
    All going good now thought, thanks to all for help : )
