Hi

Can anyone help please, i have an orange livebox and have spent hours trying to connect to ps3:mad: . It recognizes the livebox but when i test connection at end of setup it says internet connection failed:rotfl:
Could this be something to do with firewall on PC? Tried with ethernet cable and worked straight away!!??:confused:

Has anyone else had this problem with orange livebox or is it just me

Thanks for any advice:)

Hi i have the same problem here.I try to enter the wap[24 or 26 number letter]and when i come out he didnt connect,but i notice who when i click start he only show on the screen 6 digit instead of all.It was in the middle of the night so i decide to use a wired connection and work fine.I have to try again and enter the wap numbedr very very carefully,becouse i know for previous experience[wee xbox, xbox 360]is always a matter of try and try and try.I can t be sure who is not other problem,but before i start to mess with firewall etc i think twice:)

Excuse me if you know this...but the key MUST be upper case. I'm using a cable connection to my Livebox for Xbox and PS3, and wireless for the PC & the PSP. Both wireless connections work perfectly but I did forget to put the key in upper case when I set up the PC first of all (poor show as I work with IT a lot) so it connected but failed to authenticate so I didn't get an IP address.

HTH

I wish mine had been that simple:smashin:

I have had alot of trouble connecting my Orange Livebox to things, Printer..my nintendo wii and of course the playstation 3.

I finally connected my PS3 by entering in the large 24-26 code on the box and before clicking start/enter pressing the number 1 button on the box. My PS3 connected instantly resulting in a victory dance after i had been entering in the code for ages!

:clap::clap::thumbsup:

Believe me, you'll regret signing up with BT when something happens and you have to use the customer "service". Worst customer service i have ever used for anything, not just the internet.
Fiber optic virgin all the way now, and no problems what so ever.
