To connect a computer to Wi-Fi via the Livebox, you have to configure the Wi-Fi connection on your computer so that it communicates with your Livebox.
Below are the procedures to follow with Windows Vista no matter which Livebox model you have.
The procedures explained in this section:
1Your Livebox has to be installed and connected to internet. The @ light should be on and constant, not flashing.
2Activate the Wi-Fi function on your Livebox.
