    Re: Wireless router

    i have an orange livebox but it seems to be useless it wont allow 3rdparty devices to connect only oranage ones spent hours tryin to work it and it will allow file sharing either. So im lookin for a better device than the livebox nothing but trouble!

    Re: Wireless router

    I have an orange livebox and it worked flawlessly with an imac, an intel based mini-pci wireless card in my work laptop, via a dlink dwl122 usb dongle and via a netgear 54mbps usb dongle.

    However, if you want a decent wireless router get yourself a WRT54GL as you can do whatever you want with it then...

    Re: Wireless router

    What is your current connection to the internet? adsl model, router?

    How is your computer currently set up for internet access.

    Do you need a wireless device with built in adsl modem or how about a wireless access point and a seperate adsl modem?

    Re: Wireless router

    So could you just use a wireless router plugged into the ethernet port on your livebox?

    Such as a buffalo WLA-G54?
